    The Best of Southeast Alaska
    August 2-8, 2015 : Join us during peak season for whales, bears and salmon among
    calving glaciers, tidepools and rainforests. Travel in style on the 12 passenger
    classic 76' wood boat, the M/V Catalyst as we drift along the calm waters of Alaskas
    sheltered Inside Passage. Well supplement our explorations with the Catalysts
    motorized inflatable skiff and sea kayaks for water level exploration.

    Humpback whales congregate in large numbers at this time of the summer and may
    indulge in impressive bubble-net feeding or dramatic breaching, tail lobbing and
    other behaviors. Brown and black bears can appear almost anywhere during our
    travels. Well search for them catching salmon or digging clams along the shoreline.  
    This section of the Inside Passage teems with breathtaking scenery and captivating
    wildlife. Youll have a front row seat to wildlife and ancient glaciers, calving
    icebergs and dramatic fjords. Walk through lush and serene rainforests, discover
    wildflower and nurse trees, explore the prolific life in tide pools and kayak the
    gentle waters, drifting quietly past hanging gardens and waterfalls.

    Not simply a photography cruise, you'll become part of the wilds of Alaska through
    the guidance of our seasoned naturalist as we travel, explore and learn about our
    surroundings. The leisurely pace of our schedule allows us to take advantage of
    unexpected sightings and flexibility to spend time where the best viewing can be
    found. All levels of photographers and nature lovers are welcome.  

    M/V Catalyst  Owners Bill and Shannon Bailey genuinely care about the quality of
    experience their guests receive during the small ship cruise aboard the 76 historic
    Catalyst. It was built in 1932 as a research vessel for the University of
    Washingtons school of oceanography. Thoughtfully restored to comfortably accommodate
    travelers, the boat features a wood paneled salon, mahogany trim, 360 degree outdoor
    viewing areas and six cozy guest cabins. Meals and snacks are sumptuous and
    delicious, prepared with fresh, natural ingredients, including produce and seafood
    purchased locally.

    For thirty years Wendy Shattil and Bob Rozinski have produced prize winning,
    sensitive interpretations of wildlife and the American West. Well known for creating
    expressive images with provocative light, mood and humor, they link this talent with
    vast knowledge of the natural world. Wendy was the first woman awarded Grand Prize
    in the prestigious worldwide BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and
    the team is recipient of the Philip Hyde Grant for environmental photography. The
    two are members of the exclusive International League of Conservation Photographers.
    They are Department Associates for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and have
    twice been Artists in Residence at Rocky Mountain National Park. Shattil and
    Rozinski have produced fifteen books and their images have appeared in hundreds of
    publications worldwide.

    On the calm waters of Alaskas sheltered Inside Passage, well supplement our
    explorations with the Catalysts motorized inflatable skiff and sea kayaks for water
    level exploration.

    Not simply a photography cruise, you'll become part of the wilds of Alaska through
    the expertise of our seasoned naturalist as we travel, explore and learn about our
    surroundings. Two photo leaders plus naturalist
