Inian Islands and Fox Creek

Sep 06, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird


Waves and upwelling water at the Inian Islands took everyone for quite a ride this morning! All of the wildlife were feasting and taking advantage of the ripping currents. We saw diving birds, sea otters crunching on crabs, Stellar sea lions thrashing salmon into bits, and humpbacks surfacing all around. The afternoon brought more mist and smiles as hikers explored Fox Creek and kayakers cruised the coastline.
