Pavlof Harbor & Chatham Strait

Jun 28, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion


The penultimate day of the expedition brought National Geographic Sea Lion to Baranof Island, where travelers were treated to a medley of morning activities, including hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding, and Zodiac cruising. Whether through the use of legs or paddles, everyone enjoyed exploring the Alaskan wilderness one last time. Later in the afternoon much to the delight of younger passengers, the Global Explorers were offered Zodiac driving lessons. Afterward, passengers had the opportunity to brave the Polar Plunge. Those who participated had their closest encounter yet with the chilling Alaskan waters as they leapt out, submerging themselves in the name of adventure. After a morning full of activity, the remainder of the afternoon was spent cruising through Morris Reef and Chatham Strait, resulting in amazing views of both landscape and wildlife, including a mother humpback whale swimming with her calf.
