This is a nice little publication from the ADFG. It is a fairly densely packed 82 page booklet which covers nearly all the species you will see on a cruise or ferry ride through the Inside Passage. While it doesn't cover everything, like less common sea birds or odd whale species like minke whales and Rhinoceros auklets, it does cover the commonly seen species like humpbacks, bears, eagles and puffin very well. If you a hard core birder, you will still need a separate guide. But for the average visitor, this book is perfect. I have seen lots of "souvenir" guides to the wildlife of the area, but this one has real substance with good photos to boot.

The book is split into an introduction and tips, Habitats, Wildlife, and Routes. The routes were what I liked best. They give you a good idea of what to look for when you are passing whale feeding areas or places where bears tend to walk beaches. Where some books have nice photos and little summaries, this guide is truly a viewing guide, telling you how and where to be looking for the animals you want to see. Most species have tips of what to look and listen for.

The book itself is light and a nice size for slipping into a backpack. Definitely a resource to have on the ship with you. For price and size, a great resource.

I found this book to be very helpful in showing me what to expect when planning our cruise through the inside passage. The pictures are very colorful and the information helpful. I feel prepared for our trip.

I purchased this book before my inside cruise trip to Alaska. Unfortunately my cruise was too late in the year to see many of the animals described in the book. However, it was invaluable on my 2nd inside cruise to Alaska.
