Glacier Bay National Park

Jul 06, 2018 - National Geographic Quest


The day begins as Kevin Skeek, our Hoonah Tlingit Cultural Interpreter, and Christina Martinez, our National Park Ranger, board National Geographic Quest at 5 AM in Bartlett Cove. After a stop at Marble Island to view numerous seabirds, bald eagles, sea lions, and even a humpback whale, we make our way along sixty miles of the glacially carved fjord system to “up-bay,” where we visit the mountain goats of Gloomy Knob and the icebergs of the John Hopkins Glacier.
