This morning, we traveled north through Wrangell Narrows, a 22-mile long, narrow, winding channel which is marked by 60 green and red navigation aids. Today’s low tide was extremely low, and at times there was very little water around (or under) the ship! When we arrived at the picturesque fishing town of Petersburg, we were free to explore independently, or to join a guided walk or bicycle tour of the area.

Our day was capped off by a feast of locally caught Dungeness crab. Prior to dinner, an unusual expert provided an entertaining lesson on how to best eat this sort of crab.
