Jul 11, 2018 - National Geographic Quest
We started our day with an early stop at Bartlett Cove to pick up Anne, our Glacier Bay National Park Ranger and Alice, our Hoonah Tlingit Cultural Interpreter. Our first destination was South Marble Island, where a group of Stellar sea lions, glaucous-winged gulls, and tufted puffins greeted us as we approached. As we continued on our exploration into Tidal Inlet, we found wildlife high and low: sea otters were floating all around, a coastal brown bear ambled along the shorelines looking for tasty intertidal snacks, and mountain goats scampered high into the cloud layer. After lunch, we made our way towards John Hopkins Glacier and took in the amazing views provided by this tidewater glacier. Our night was capped off with a short visit to Bartlett Cove and a lovely visit by local author and musician Kim Heacox before cruising on toward the next day’s adventure.
