Cruising Alaska, July 2007 - Victoria-Seattle-Whitehorse

At 4:55, we met the Victoria pilot who would take the ship to the docking position in the Outer Harbour. I don't understand why a pilot is needed anymore with the amount of electronics on these ships - holding on to a seafaring tradition perhaps. On the distant shore is Fisgard Lighthouse, the first lighthouse built on Canada's west coast (1860).
