A simply delicious day on the Kamchatka Peninsula began with a bear sighting followed by our first glimpse of a Stellar sea eagle! This was to be a theme for the day, and we began our walks ashore at Morzhovaya with appropriate caution and excitement. Thankfully no bears witnessed on shore, but many signs were found and rare birds spotted. The afternoon led to our repositioning to the Zupanova River where the Zodiacs were deployed for an extended cruise and low and behold if we didn’t get a phenomenal look at a coastal brown bear and great views of the legendary Stellar sea eagle. The volcanos of Kamchatka watched over the proceedings and peacefully smoldered on the horizon.
