The topography and setting of Saginaw Bay is unusual in this part of Southeast Alaska due to the sliver of fossiliferous Paleozoic limestone forming the bay. Today’s anchorage amidst the forested cliffs offered our first opportunity for in-depth exploration of the temperate rainforest, as well as intertidal life discoveries through shore walks and paddling. Afternoon cruising through Frederick Sound and Chatham Strait repeatedly lured everyone to outside decks with charismatic cetacean sightings. One guest claimed the day could not be better.
