I first visited Alaska while working on Princess Cruises as their Video Producer on the Star Princess ship and will never forget that first summer of exploring glaciers, filming bears as they devour wild salmon, crab fishing, and watching dozens of eagles fly above me. Traveling on cruise ships can be miserably frustrating for a young Videographer who wants to meet locals, hike and camp out to capture great shots but spending two summers in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Glacier Bay allowed me to feel like Alaska was my second home. I found myself talking to tourists about the wilderness and telling stories of when I saw the glacier calving last and how big an eagles wingspan can reach. I was anxious to to explore this place each week with different tourists who were gitty with excitement to spot a humpback whale and chanting for the Margerie glacier face to calve.

Alaska Tours/Excursions I Recommend
