June 2016 Ferry Trip to Dutch Harbor

June, 2016

with Aaron Bowman

Several Anchorage Audubon members are organizing a guided birding trip on the Tustumena ferry from Homer to Dutch in June. We are also hoping to charter a boat in Dutch to better our chances of seeing the Whiskered Auklet.

The ferry schedule doesn’t come out until November but the cabins fill up very quickly so we are doing some preplanning now. We think it will cost about $550 for the ferry trip with a berth. Please note: this price is based on last year’s rate. The flight from Dutch to Anchorage is roughly $500, and we expect the cost of staying overnight in Dutch to be about $100/night (possibly 2 nights depending on the ferry schedule).

We are just now contacting boat captains and don’t have a price for the boat yet. We will be asking for $150 -300 to cover the guide‘s travel (Aaron Bowman) depending on the number of people on the trip.

If you are interested in this possible adventure, please contact Lynn Barber (dalybar@aol.com) now so we can contact you as soon we know the schedule and the rates.
