Thread: Nice Trip Up Barry Arm

    Default Nice Trip Up Barry Arm

    I did a trip from Whittier to Serpentine glacier Sunday - Tuesday evening. Got my face washed a few times in Passage Canal but very nice water after taking the left. I didn't see a single sea lion last year but ran across groups of them all the way from Pigot to Pt. Pakenham. Nary a whale this time. Actually caught and released 2 mini halibut up there...(P.Pak). Was pleased that the whole trip consumed 17 gallons of gas leaving me a third of my fuel in reserve. Not pleased that I became distracted while retrieving and left my motor running for several minutes out of water on the trailer. Some people's kids...sheesh! BTW...Are these pictured seals or sea lions?

    I am now an expert but they look like sea lions to me.

    I thought that's what they were...Anyway, that's what I was seeing. Those were at the Barry arm entrance. Must be anticipating a salmon dinner in the near future.

    The whales must all have been in Pigot Bay! One lone acrobatic animal, plus a separate group of 3 kept us entertained all last weekend.

    I'll be darned! Got out of Whittier late Sunday night and stayed in Pigot until about 8am Monday...didn't see a one. I couldn't open your attachment, Steve, but I bet it was way cool seeing a jumper. I never have except in videos...hope to get lucky this year!
