Part 2 from Homer, AK; Seldovia

After securing another site stay at the campground, I returned to the marina for a wildlife boat tour to Seldovia, across Kachemak Bay. I hadn’t had any interest in a boat tour prior to my arrival, but after seeing the mountains and glaciers in the distance, I suddenly wanted to cross the bay! It did not disappoint.

I caught the 10 a.m. departure of a boat named The Raibow Connection, which travelled out to Gull Island first before turning towards Seldovia. I got my first glimpse of sea otters and eagles in the wild, (which I saw aplenty in the coming days), seals, kittiwakes and common murres, and a puffin! In Seldovia, I hiked the Otter Bahn trail (3 miles round trip) before returning back to town with time to pop into a few shops and sit down for an iced coffee at a small coffee shop. Seldovia was charming.

Another great day!
