Inside passage, Canada

Inside passage is a sea route which extends from Vancouver along the western coast of Canada to Whittier in Alaska. It is a splendid voyage sailing past the many small islands and sheltered bays scattered along the western coast of Canada. The Taku, the mailboat I travelled on, is one of the Alaska Marine Highway ferries. The mailboat to Juneau calls in at three ports: Ketchikan, Wrangell and Petersburg. All of these places are accessible only by sea or air, which means that for the time being, the continued existence of the mailboat is guaranteed.
