Whittier

Port of Whittier, AK

Our arrival at Whittier was bittersweet.  It marked the end of our cruise and of a great time.  Wittier, on first glance seems unremarkable.  There are few or no individual homes here.  There is a high rise apartment building.  There is a very nice harbor and the port is completely surrounded by mountains.  The only access to Whittier is by a tunnel through the mountain which is one way only and is shared by train and vehicular traffic, or by water or air (floatplane only).  Previously primarily a commercial-industrial port, one of the cruise lines determined that it was a good deep water port which avoided the congestion of nearby Seward and provided a good way to carry cruise line passengers by rail or bus, either to Anchorage to depart Alaska, or on up into Denali National Park.  It looks like a nice place to sail or fly into and a nice point of departure for some of Alaska’s wild beauty.  And its hard not to argue that it is gorgeous in the early morning.
