Welcome to the "Cruising to Southeast Alaska" series of pictures and stories from the M/V Royal Sounder for 2011. We cruise on a 45' LOA twin-diesel trawler-style boat. David and I trade the role of designated captain on a yearly basis. We fully share the boat handling, including docking on a 50-50 basis so we both keep up our skills. Linda does most of the picture taking and writing but David is a great side-lines commentator.

We have made multiple trips to Southeast Alaska and each one has been a unique experience. The weather from one year to the next can completely change the cruising and what a cove or village is like. We often meet old friends and make new ones which also adds to the experience of every cruise. Most of all, Southeast Alaska is so vast and beautiful, there are still places we have not seen and quite a few we don't mind seeing again.

We hope you enjoy our 2011 "Cruising to Southeast Alaska". The pictures and story from our 2009 and 2007 trip to Southeast Alaska are still online and can be accessed at: Cruising Southeast Alaska 2009 and 2007 Inside Passage Blog
