I've been saying that I'm not leaving Alaska until I see a bear in the wild. I can go home now.
This week's cruise to Tracy Arm fjord was a bear bonanza, with three separate black bear sightings, including a mama bear with her three cubs.
Also spotted - a rock full of raucous sea lions, all barking at each other.
Also making an appearance was a humpback whale (showing his characteristic hump below).
