Elrington Passage

Fox Farm anchorage, our last stop in Prince William Sound, is a great anchorage for waiting out weather on route to Seward. It just happens to also be another little gem of nature. Waterfalls,rolling hills and Tufted puffins nest near by, hiking is an easy walk along the beach to a 100-foot saddle leading to a dramatic overlook of Latouche Passage and the Gulf of Alaska.

Like gambling you never know when you'll hit the nature/wildlife jackpot - like we did today, a full body breach just to starboard of C.S.J. from a humpback. Exciting!
