Sep 20, 2017 - National Geographic Quest
Sailing the Salish Sea this past week has afforded the guests and crew aboard National Geographic Quest a handful of cultural experiences and a range of forested ecosystems to explore. Our final day was spent on West Redonda Island in Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park. Explored by the Spanish in the late 1700s, West Redonda Island and its neighbor East Redonda were originally named “Isla Redonda” or “round.”
Guests aboard National Geographic Quest woke to a morning that reminded us fall has arrived. With a slight chill in the air, we disembarked to enjoy kayaking and hiking at Roscoe Bay. Stepping off the ship and hiking along Black Lake or paddling in the pristine waters of the protected bay allowed guests one final chance to experience the quiet and still of Desolation Sound.
