The weather cooperated and I was lucky to have chartered a good boat with a great captain for the project. The survey site was actually about an hour boat ride west of Sitka at Biorka Island. We got to see a bit of Sitka Sound on the transit there and back. The captain also showed us his house which is on a small private island only minutes from Sitka. Surprisingly this is actually a common around Sitka as there are dozens of small beautiful islands.
