Great Alaska Whalewatching

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:

            Dolphin Tours

   or call:  1-800-719-3422

Below in videos, you will see a great video of orca.  I took that video  with this cruise.

Welcome to Kathy Slamp's Alaska Website


On July 15, I returned from speaking for TWO amazing Alaska cruises on Viking Orion.  We had terrific weather all but one day.  Hubbard was especially magnificent on the 2nd cruise.  

If you are visiting this website for the first time, it is interactive and secure.  You may "join" and then post some of your own Alaska experience for others to share.  I LOVE seeing your pictures, and I loved meetig each of you!

Hi Alaskathy friends! 

During 2013 - 2017 we did volunteer work in S. Africa, Kenya, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Ethiopia, Botswana, The Congo, Ghana, Cote d"Ivoire, Uganda, Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi, & Zambia.  (I've posted a lot of African photos on this site.  Click Here)

Recently, I've developed TravelswithKathyslamp website.  This website is still in the making, and I'm truly excited about it.  It features pictures, videos, links, and personal experiences from Thailand, Mediterranean area, China, New Zealand, the USA, as well as Alaska and Africa. I think you will LOVE this new website.

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.

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.

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!

Going to Alaska in 2017?

You might be interested in these two specific items:

Every Cruise in Alaska visits one or more glaciated areas, and I have visited them all.  This little "easy-to-read" and understand book about the glaciers answers the 12 most asked glacier questions. It includes an entire chapter for  Hubbard Glacier, College Fjord, and Tracy Arm.  The final chapter outlines all of the lighthouses you "might" see on a cruise with a bit of history about each.  The entire book is illustrated with full color photos that I have taken!  This is great book to obtain BEFORE  a cruise.  Just click this icon or on "Kathy's Alaska Products" above and you can purchase it now.

        The Eskimo Yo-Yo

For years on the cruise ships, I've demonstrated a traditional Native Alaskan toy--the Eskimo Yo-Yo!  People LOVE it and have asked many times how to purchase one.

This season, I've met a Tglinket Native Alaskan from Ketchikan who is making them for YOU! 

Each Yo-Yo is made from sea otter, includes directions, AND a seal that is only available to Alaskan Natives.

Recently, this little girl from Jakarta, Indonesia sent me this photo taken on the Golden Princess in 2013.  Isn't she adorable?
