Spent the past five days cruising up to Hoonah and back. We had a great trip. Weather was amazing for most part. We pulled out of Petersburg on 5/12 just before 0500. Frederick Sound was calm, but there was a little fog. We towed a 17' aluminum skiff for exploring.




Our first stop was Freshwater Bay on Chichagof. That leg was 16 hours. The approach to the float is a little tight at low tide. There is a forest service cabin in the background.

Here are a couple of shots of North Chatham





Getting ready to turn into Port Frederick. Hoonah Island on the right.



After leaving Hoonah we anchored up in Cosmos Cove for the evening. The sun was setting as we approached.



Here it is the next morning.

After leaving Cosmos Cove we stopped by Ell Cove. Tide was out so I didn't go in towing the skiff. Here is the left waterfall that marks the entrance.



We stopped by Baranoff Warm Springs to check things out. We bumped into a couple of state folks who told us they were rebuilding the float and turning it over to the City and Borough of Sitka. Here are a couple of shots.












Headed back to Petersburg. Weather was amazing. This is Frederick Sound near Point Gardner.






Overall a great trip. I don't have the exact mileage but it was around 150 miles each way. We left Petersburg with full tanks and took on 153 gallons in Hoonah. I'd imagine a similar burn rate on the return trip, although water was a little calmer in the Icy Strait, Northern Chatham, Lynn Canal intersection. Amazing five days.
