Alaska Spring Whales & Eagles with Dennis Rogers

EVENT DESCRIPTION: Join us in Southeast Alaska aboard our 84-foot luxury Northern Song during one of the most exciting seasonal wildlife re awakenings of the year: the Sitka Spring Herring Spawn and Humpback Whale Homecoming. Unguided, this small group 9-day / 8-night all-inclusive cruise celebrates the first humpback whale bubble-net lunging and bald eagles. Gorgeous snowy backdrops form the perfect framework to quietly perfect your photographic creativity.

This unguided photography adventure for 8 maximum participants aboard our luxurious and spacious yacht will be captained by NANPA member, Captain Dennis Rogers. An Alaska resident for more than 45 years, Captain Dennis brings navigational expertise that allows his guests to capture those magical photographic moments born from patience and knowledge. The tour is based in Sitka, Alaska, and guests can expect to see humpback whales performing the first bubble net lunging of the year as well as the magical herring spawn and soaring and diving bald eagles by the thousands.

Our safe, comfortable and functional Northern Song features four beautiful guest staterooms, an expansive indoor common area, gourmet meals prepared in a fully equipped kitchen with on board professional chef, and several covered and open spacious decks providing the perfect platform for wildlife photography.
