What we didn't plan on and what no one told us is that not only does it rain a lot it rains a whole lot! We took a 7-day cruse through the inside passage and it rained every single day. We might have a few hours break in the rain or a half day but often would have a great deal of fog. Fortunately we had some breaks during some of the good photo opportunities. One day was such a driving rain the weather covers for our cameras were not helping so we had to put them in our cases. The cases were semi-waterproof and had a jacket that could go over it. Even at that the inside got quite damp, possibly some was due to condensation. If we had it to do over we probably would have brought the water proof housing for the Canon 630 rated for 150 feet under water but it was so bulky we opted not to bring it thinking we could live without it. The quality of the Canon 630 is as close to a DSLR as I've seen in a small camera and better quality than the Fuji. We would also have taken our completely 100% waterproof cases, they even float!
