From the beginning

In 1995 Annette and I bought the Auklet and started Auklet Charter Services. From the start Annette has been the primary crew and cook, kayak and hiking guide as well as helping with most aspects of operating, upkeep, maintenance and bookkeeping. I could not have made any of this adventure happen without her patience, hard work, support and love. To say the least she has put in her time. Annette is essentially retiring from the Auklet. She is circling back to her involvement with the Lutheran church and will be working with a congregation in Anchorage with children’s theater, puppetry and music as well as looking forward to having her summers back in Cordova. I will have various folks helping me with future charters aboard the Auklet.
