I snapped this one morning in Vancouver. This is one of the last ships to Alaska at the end of the summer cruise season in the Pacific Northwest which runs late-spring to early fall. During the height of the season as many as three ships arrive and depart from Vancouver each day. That's no small feat when you consider of the numbers of people getting on and off the ships. The thing I love about this Harbour is that the water is so clean and teaming with life including mammals such as Otters and Seals. A few of the Otters frequent the hotel swimming pools along this waterfront and it doesn't take too long to spot a seal trolling for food or just lazily swimming by watching the people watching him. In any case, summer is a fun time in Vancouver and whether you're here for a cruise or just taking in the sights it's guaranteed to please.
