Halleck Harbor & Chatham Strait

Jul 16, 2019 - National Geographic Quest

Finally we got our boots wet! After two days of Zodiac tours around glaciers and a lovely afternoon in Petersburg, today we got into the real wilderness of Southeast Alaska. Halleck Harbor on Kuiu Island was the destination for the morning. As we sailed Chatham Strait over the afternoon, undersea specialist Paolo Marra-Biggs taught us that every other breath we take is thanks to the ocean, and local researcher Dr. Andy Szabo told us about the amazing work the Alaska Whale Foundation is doing.
