Property description

The view from any one of its three decks is a living picture that you will want to etch in your memory. Eagles, sea gulls and ravens frequently cruise past the ship on the thermals. Be sure to bring your camera as you will get some wonderful photos.
The “Double Eagle” was originally built as a Gulf Coast Tour/Cruise boat, but was converted to a Gulf Coast Shrimper. On March 24, 1989, the tanker Exxon Valdez grounded on Bligh Reef in the upper part of Prince William Sound. The tanker was carrying approximately 53 million gallons of crude oil. Within a few days, it had spilled almost 11 million gallons of the oil into Prince William Sound. It was then that the “Double Eagle” was brought to Alaska to work and serve as a crew quarters during the cleanup.
