Misty Fjords

May 13, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


The dawn of May 13th on board the National Geographic Sea Bird saw a customs and border protection boat pulling up to the stern. After a scenic cruise entering American waters, we were all clear to begin the second half of our adventure in Southeast Alaska. Dixon entrance is the body of water that guards the entrance to a legendary place called Misty Fjord. A National Monument, Misty Fjord is one of the most scenic places in coastal Alaska and a favorite among staff and crew. The afternoon’s program was to explore the waterway by kayak and inflatable boat. After paddling around the corner in the fjord, the ship weighed anchor and made a dramatic entrance thru the channel and around to the next entrance, by a spectacular waterfall. A very scenic Mother’s Day!

James Hyde

Naturalist

James is your typical free-range Pacific Northwest outdoorsy type. Born in Seattle and reared nearby on Vashon Island, he is most comfortable in slightly cold and damp weather. James joined the Lindblad team in July 2016 as a dive buddy and has been in love with expedition travel since. On his own he has traveled to Europe, Asia, and Australia, but with Lindblad he hopes to continue his adventures across the globe, searching out the beauties of the natural world. An avid scuba diver James can’t help being excited about whales, sharks, and pinnipeds, but he will also happily bend your ear about underwater slugs and invertebrates. It’s best just to humor him about these things.
