Sitkoh and Chatham Straight

Jul 31, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion


It was a beautiful morning that began with a brown bear sighting on the way into Sitkoh Bay. Some of us went on interpretive hikes and some went kayaking. Our underseas specialist gathered invertebrates to model a tide pool, and a few guests even went swimming (albeit briefly).
