Summer Alaska whale watching is some of the best in the world, and Juneau, Alaska is the BEST place for that! In Juneau there are several companies. but Dolphin Tours still does the best job. I highly recommend this company. To check their rates and book a tour, just visit:

Below in videos, you will see a great video of orca. I took that video with this cruise.
After spending about seven months each year in Africa as a volunteer, I am returning to Alaska "part-time" during the summer of 2017. To begin with, I will be the naturalist on the Celebrity Infinity May 28 - June 18. Perhaps I will see you there or another time on a beautiful Alaskan cruise.
During the four years we spent time in Africa as volunteers, we visited South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Ethiopia, The Congo, Ghana, Cote d"Ivoire, Uganda, Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi, and Zambia,
Alaska is STILL my passion, and I trust it becomes yours as well. This site is just for you. Let me know what you're interested in and I'll do my best to accommodate you. Or, if you have ANY Alaska questions, I'l do my best to answer then for you.
For 12 seasons it's been my privilege to narrate on Alaskan cruise ships which has been a trill of a life time on every level. One of the best parts of this job is meeting people like you and your family, and I love to hear from you, see your pictures, and share your Alaska experiences.
In 2013, I also added a final chapter about Tracy Arm to Rendezvous with Majesty which I believe completes this great little book. Majestic Alaska (my 55 minute DVD) was updated, and it just keeps getting better and better. These products as well as the Eskimo YO-YO and my other Alaska books can be purchased through the "Alaska Products" tab above.
Coupling my early childhood in the North with extensive study along with my adult Alaska adventures and travels, I am privileged to share my passion for Alaska with thousands of cruisers from every country in the world. My parents moved our family from warm South Texas to Fairbanks, Alaska when I was 4 years old! So, having been in Alaska even before Statehood gives me a unique perspective to share with cruisers.
Presently, my husband and I are back in South Africa for two month doing volunteer work. We spent four months here last season and FELL IN LOVE with Africa. (I've posted a lot of South Africa photos on this site. Click Here to view. )
The Alaskathy Website is a great site to visit when you're planning your own Alaska travel adventure. It's loaded with Alaska video clips as well as dozens of photos that you will love!
