Sucia Island, Washington

Oct 26, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


On our last day aboard National Geographic Sea Bird, we made way to Sucia Island. There we landed in the morning for our last shore-based activities. Some guests hiked the island, looking for subjects of photographic interest, while others enjoyed the beautiful scenery and sunshine. In the afternoon, we cruised around the San Juan Islands, looking for wildlife. As night fell, we docked in a small bay and watched the sunset for the last time on this beautiful voyage.
