Another wonderful adventure, this time in southern Alaska. We were fully immersed in the beauty of the place and learned a great deal about the history here as well as the flora and fauna. The whale bubble net feeding was thrilling. Peter and Nancy work overtime to make our experience memorable. Love Peters Dan Dan noodles. The crab ain't so bad either. Another fantastic trip on the Gyr.  --David and Susan W


Such an incredible experience… We saw a sperm whale, humpbacks, bears, eagles, sea lions, sea otters, porpoises. We caught salmon, crabs, and saw many stranded wrecks. Excellent food and an incredibly enriching atmosphere. Thanks for your friendship. To Gyrfalcon is a great ship, and I wish her, captain Nancy and chief engineer-first mate Peter many more years of happiness.   --Stefano B

BEST trip ever on BEST boat ever with BEST crew possible.  N&P, you gave us the trip of a lifetime.  Whales galore, sea lions, sea otters, glaciers, birds too numerous to count  --John and Ellyn


What an accomplished crew you two make – so competent. Thank you for a wonderful experience we’ll not forget. We hope to return some day.


What an amazing week. It was like living in a floating maritime museum. The Gyrfalcon is a fascinating vessel.


You are the best hosts. Thanks for your hospitality.


We saw so much – wonderful views, spiny dogfish, all the birds and some amazing crabs to fill our bellies.


So sad to see the end of a wonderful trip.
