Alaska Aboard Nautilus Swell

I've just come home from a really wonderful trip aboard Nautilus Swell, doing a little diving along the Southeast Alaska coast, but really doing more topside photography. The whales and sea otters and steller sea lions all delivered, but the overall scenery and sheer magnificence of the setting greatly defined the experience.

The Nautilus Swell, a 90-foot tugboat has been tastefully refitted to become the perfect expedition boat for marine photography in the region. I'll write about it all in greater detail in the next issue of Alert Diver, but for now here is a preview of the photo-opportunities.

As final endorsement of the quality of the adventure, before I left the boat I booked another charter for August 2013. It is really that inspiring and productive.
