6 Small-Ship Captains Pick Their Favorite Ports | QuirkyCruise.com
QuirkyCruise asked a handful of small-ship captains who command a range of small vessels — yachts, paddle-wheelers, tall ships — about their favorite ports to sail into. Their picks are fascinating.
Here they are, in the small-ship captains’ own vivid descriptions.
See if any of these are among your favorites, too. Or perhaps worth adding to your bucket list?
Capt. Dan Blanchard, UnCruise Adventures — Juneau, Alaska
“This capital of Alaska is land-locked, hemmed in by snowcapped mountains and sits in a beautiful fjord. A massive glacier is 10 minutes from the airport and other glaciers adorn the mountains that engulf this historic mining center. From trails for hiking, to a mountaintop tram, whale watching, salmon and halibut fishing, skiing, bear watching and more, it is an adventurer’s paradise. My paradise. Museums, native culture and great food highlight this gorgeous town of 32,000 people.”
