Inian Islands and George Island

Jul 24, 2018 - National Geographic Quest

Today on National Geographic Quest, everyone had a day loaded with excitement! We started the day with Zodiac cruises around the Inian Islands, just inside Cross Sound. We had an amazing opportunity to get up close to Steller sea lions, sea otters, puffins, and even a couple of minke whales!

In the afternoon we had a chance to hike and kayak at George Island, a few miles from the Inian Islands. Here the hike ended at the sight of a World War II gun emplacement. The real treat is that the gun is still there!
