Great info! We are going to try to see it on May 26, it's three days after full moon, and there is a low tide of -2.7, so I think we have a chance. Around what time should we leave our hotel (Hawthorne Suites) in order to get to Beluga Point around 6:00? I ask because just looking at Mapquest, doesn't really tell you the whole story, like rush hour, etc.
Also I read that Capt Cook hotel and some other have rooftop bars, I thought that might be cool to do, any suggestions?
I'd leave about 4pm due to ruh hour during the late afternoon. I suggest you take Minnesota PKWY which is a freeway part of the way and follow it until it joins the New Seward Hwy and head south. you may be early, you may just make right on time. Stay off Gambell St/Seward Hwy in the rush hours, it gets quite heavy. The rule of thumb is all roads leading into downtown in the morning and all roads going out in the evening will be the heaviest, granted this a population of about 300,000 population commuting, not in the millons like in the west and east coast cities.
The captain cook has a nice restaurant $$$ at the top with fantastic views. worth at least a trip up for a view on clear days. You'll see Mt McKinley, volcanic peaks of the Alaska Range, the chugach mtns and Cook Inlet.
Thanks, Alaskaman, you always come through!!
Will there be a Bore Tide on the 15th,16th, or 20th? If so, about what time?
LOL hello Darla! Small world huh?
Hey! Never knew that was you!
Would like to catch the bore tide - is there one on 15, 16 17 June?
There is always some sort of bore tide when the tide comes in but the dates he gave you are the ones worth seeing.
I noticed that we will also be there at the same time. I'm not sure if we'll make it due to a conflict with another appointment. I was wondering if you take any photos if I might be able to get some prints from you?
Are you also doing a cruise?
Thanks -- hope you can help. Would love to see it but unable.
