Ferry question

We are taking the ferry from Whittier to Valdez and am wondering how much wildlife or glaciers you actually see while going from port to port? Thought I would see what past expierence some of you have had?

Thanks

    I only saw salmon jumping out the water and kittyhawks near the port. You are surrounded by glacier.

    It takes a trained eye to spot them but you might see whales blowing in the distance. ...and you should definitely see a few bald eagles if you key in on the white heads. Both take some experience to identify when you're not actually looking for them.

    other good possibilities.
    -bears walking on shorelines
    -otters
    -sealions
    -puffins

    We were considering taking the ferry from Valdez to Whittier. What's the weather likely to be in mid-May? I have requested a Milepost but it have not received it yet. How long does it take on the ferry?
