Another Great Alaskan Summer Aboard Ursa Major!

We just wrapped up yet another great summer in Alaska, the 15th season for Ursa Major!  Our last three Alaska Adventure trips of the season were a wonderful mix of paddling, hiking, and wildlife viewing.  The humpback whales were out in abundance, and were quite active in both their feeding and cavorting.
