  1. great info on weather and such. thank you guys! we cannot wait! and the trip sounds and looks fabulous @ifihadamilliondollars!
  2. Interested to know about the weather (rain, temps, etc) and how was the whale watch itself? Heading to alaska next week on a cruise. still trying to figure out the clothing!
  3. i am hoping i won't need them - but since we don't have waterproof (i am spraying my sneakers but they are canvas with lots of pores) or hiking shoes, these will suffice in emergency. i will be happy to have them -and then get rid of them!
  4. we are going on our cruise next week and found these online. i figure if we are sitting outside or on a whale watch, its a good option as it its very easy to carry around and pack up. i plan to dispose after the trip. they are 14$ amazon prime. the sole has some tread as well. there are also silicone shoe covers you can purchase - prettier than but like the old fashioned rubbers that we used to put on our shoes oh so many years ago.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CPCWMPM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. I am sad to hear that Capt Alan may have to close shop. we did get our refund and he had a spot with Jayleen for us, but our ship did not get in early enough for the tour she had available - but i did appreciate his effort. I was able to book with Harve and Marve pretty easily. looking forward to our trip. i am sorry that your initial trip did not work out but hope it's all good this month.
  6. hi Cheryl - i just found out this week as well. Captain Alan said i should get my refund 'in the coming days'. i did not realize this happened quite a few weeks ago- and wonder why they are cancelling all the tours. I did book harv and marvs experience as well for the small group. I am glad you were able to rebook. i tried Jayleen, and a few others who all were booked. I have heard great things about harv and marv so was pleased they had openings that date.
  7. Anyone in Juneau on Aug 3 looking to book a whale watch tour? Mine got cancelled as Captain Jack has passed away sadly, and they cancelled my trip (Whale watching Juneau - aboard the Scania). Jayleen can accommodate but I need another passenger for her to open a tour. Any takers?
  8. On Amazon it was a flash sale for a few hours for the wingspan binoculars and I was very pleased to purchase them at that price. Perhaps that sale will return- I had not seen it before.
  9. SALE ALERT: just bought on amazon - Wingspan optics spectator 8x32 for $37. FYI I also bought the Harbor Freight 10x50 for $18. They are very bright and clear with a wide field of view. they are also bigger and heavier than i would like. keeping those for the kids travelling with us.
  10. i just bought the Eddie Bauer 30L as well on sale. This way i won't be trapped into carrying too much stuff - just what i will need. May not be 'comfortable' but i am not hiking or carrying a Laptop daily, so i am not worried. I also have an osprey 20L but it's too stiff for my liking.
  11. i just purchased these harbor freight 10x50- with the 20% off coupon they were $18. i was hesitant to get 10x but at this price, even if they go overboard it will be worth it. The image seems sharp but these are my first binoculars. I do see a knob for a tripod but i don't understand how it would work - any insight appreciated. I have a Monopod for my camera and thought that could help steady these. thanks friends.
  12. would you be so kind as to share a link - i would be interested to check them out. thank you!
