Captain Alex von Wichman
(Captain Brad’s Sister)

Excerpt from Babkin Charters website:

“Whale, porpoise, river and sea otter, sea lion, eagles, puffins and bear in the beautiful surroundings of calving glaciers, fjords, snowfields, and rocky coastlines.

Enjoy locally caught seafood for dinner. Go ashore for a hike or to explore a stream full of spawning salmon. Kayak in safe and sheltered waters. Get away from the mainstream of visitors in Alaska and experience the uniqueness of Prince William Sound.

The geography and range of wildlife and marine life in the Sound are so incredibly diverse that each of our charters is essentially personalized. Our charters range from day trips to multi-day explorations. Routes and destinations alter according to where the fish are running, the position of migrating pods of whales, or the better snow conditions for backcountry skiing.”
