May 14, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion
Last night we experienced some waves as we crossed Hecate Strait, but by daybreak, we were in the protected waters of Alaska’s Misty Fjords National Monument. During the morning, we saw many marine mammals –energetic Dall’s porpoises, humpback whales, and killer whales! We cruised deep into Misty Fjords, past dramatic rock cliffs smoothed by glaciers, several waterfalls, and forested fjord walls. In the afternoon, we boarded expedition landing craft, and we cruised right along the edges of the innermost bay.
