Port Althorp and George Island, Alaska

May 16, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Lion


The National Geographic Sea Lion found herself in the protected bay of Port Althorp on Tuesday morning. Guests aboard had several options of activity, from hiking ranging from a bushwhacking good time all the way to a more leisurely short walk, with an emphasis on photography. The afternoon offered fantastic hikes on George Island, a small forested bit of land buffered by the Pacific Ocean. George Island is home to a variety of Alaskan flora and fauna, as well as a fantastically rich underwater world.
