We went on a tour by boat around Sitka. It was called a sea otter tour, but encompassed many other kinds of wildlife. We saw sea otters, starfish, bald eagles, humpback whales, a deer, etc. The whales were by far the coolest part of the tour (at least for me). They were very close to us - 2 of them. The tour guides guessed it was a mom and baby, because otherwise they wouldn't have been together. They would come up to the surface, play around for a little bit, then dive down to find something to eat and come back up in 5-7 minutes. It was amazing to get to witness this so close.
