m/v Nordic Quest Departs for Juneau

It’s the 20th of May and we have departed Anacortes on our way back to Juneau. After clearing Canadian Customs at Bedwell Harbor, our itinerary includes stops at Nanaimo, Campbell River, Port Harvey, Namu, Pruth Bay, Shearwater, Prince Rupert, Ketchikan, El Capitan Caves on Prince of Wales Island, Petersburg, Endicott Arm and finally Juneau. Of course, I have some planned stops along the way where I know we’ll fill the crab pots and land a few nice halibut for the onboard freezers.

My crew is excited about the trip and there are sure to be some adventures and stories to tell. I’ll try to add a few stories upon our arrival in Juneau.
