Coordinates : 60.70276,-147.143097 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : Blue whales, orcas, humpback whales, sea otters to photograph all the boats more 'or less large and in the ports of Whittier and Valdez where exactly are organized mini cruises daily. In addition there are hundreds of bald eagles that live near the strait. The protagonists are of course the glaciers from the mountains down to the sea and where the boats that organize mini cruises reach these giant glaciers a few tens of meters literally making me shudder for the emotions you feel.

Recommended equipment : From wide angle for landscapes and breathtaking glaciers to the telephoto 200mm minimum animal species. Trying to protect the equipment from salt water spray when sailing and when parked under giacciai.

Best months : Surely the summer, from June to August and 'ideal but May and September are not bad. The weather and 'always very variable with sunny minimized.

How to get there : The ports of embarkation for the mini cruises are Whittier (Anchorage reach of 95km) and Valdez.In especially for those coming from Anchorage, take the Seward Highway along the sea through scenarios and superb views and just before Whittier you must ' through a tunnel truly unique (the tunnel and 'alternating one-way and more' on the road also passes the train that precisely connects Anchorage to Whittier).

Visits : Admission is free. Chance 'to make cruising with medium size boats to hire motor boats and canoes. http://www.princewilliamsound.com/

Notes : The Strait of Prince William, Prince William Sound in English, is a narrow stretch of sea between the rugged mountains overlooking the Gulf of Alaska and surrounding waters enclosed by a large number of islands that separate it from the Pacific Ocean. A means of communication and transit for refueling tankers for oil in the oil of the Trans-Alaska, to Valdez. Huge glaciers are slowly coming down from the mountains to the sea and the snow-capped danger of crashing into the water. The Strait of Prince William is a delicate habitat: the many species that inhabit it are linked by a relationship of interdependence and all are sensitive to imbalances caused by man. During the breeding season, myriads of sea otters with children lie down on a bed of seaweed in the strait. The Danish navigator Vitus Bering and his crew were the first Europeans to arrive in Alaska in 1741.
