When everything else is frozen over Port Valdez stays fluid. On a calm day you can slide along the glassy surface Port Valdez taking in the quite of summer with the occasional sea bird flying by. Probably one of the most fun aspects of this tour is the frequency at which the seals watch us.
The Dock Point and Mineral Creek area has the rocky islands and is great for getting close to seals and otters.
While Old Town is an up close historic tour with the remnants of the old docks and and relics lost to the sea. Old town also provides lots of opportunities to see seals as well, they seem to be more comfortable getting closer to us in that setting. They prefer the shallow water when the orcas are in Port Valdez.
