Dundas Bay, Glacier Bay, and Fox Creek

May 30, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion


After spending the night at a quiet anchorage in Icy Strait, National Geographic Sea Lion lifted its anchor and headed toward Dundas Bay, one of the more remote bays in Glacier Bay National Park. Our plans got slightly delayed by a wonderful encounter with a pod of killer whales right at the mouth of the Dundas River! So, after spending an hour in the company of these incredible mammals, and on a perfect morning, we continued to our anchorage. From there we had the option of several exploratory hikes or going for a long Zodiac cruise into the depths of this wilderness waterway. During lunch our vessel repositioned a short distance just off Fox Creek for our afternoon activities of kayaking around the Shaw Islands, or several choices of hikes along the creek!
