Inian Islands and George Island

Jun 28, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


We had a wonderful day exploring the extremely nutrient rich waters of the Inian Islands and George Island.  Their close proximity to the opening of the Inside Passage to the Pacific Ocean greatly influences the currents and winds of this area, creating high concentrations of upwelling. All the available food lends to great views of large marine mammal sightings. Everyone had a great day enjoying the sites through Zodiac cruising and hikes.
