What I liked
My job involved constant amazing new experiences, as I took out tours ranging from 5-35 people, mostly from the cruise ships. The wildlife and views along the tour were incredible and never got old even 3 months in to the season. Highlights would include close encounters with humpback whales, (almost) guaranteed bald eagle sightings, porpoises, and coastal brown bears. The job also involved sharing stories and rich culture from the Native Tlingit people, and attempting to share as much as their culture as possible in the tour. This had the effect of making me much more comfortable in public speaking, as it was a skill that I needed to use every day.
