Dundas Bay | Glacier Bay National Park

Jul 29, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion


In short, WOW!

Otters, wolves, birds, berries, beauty, bears and blubber! Dundas Bay is an expansive and incredibly rich fjord with several side fjords and a lush sprawling assortment of tidal meadows, mud flats and thick forest. This diversity and abundance of habitats makes Dundas a vital and significant component of this part of Southeast Alaska. We used every means at our disposal to explore this dynamic portion of Glacier Bay National Park – hikes set out from two different locations, kayaks took to the water for a guided paddle of the bay and Zodiacs made their way along the shore and across the bays.

About the Author

Doug Gualtieri

Naturalist

Doug’s passion for the natural world started at an early age in his home state of Michigan. He received two biology degrees from Central Michigan University, and later went on to get a master’s degree in conservation biology. His education led him to study a diverse range of natural sciences, with an emphasis on ecology, animal behavior, and migratory birds. Shortly after leaving the academic world, Doug migrated north to Alaska with his trusty Siberian husky, Koda. He began working as a naturalist in Denali National Park in 1999. For over seven years he has shared his love of Alaska and Denali’s six million acres with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic guests, as trip leader for the Denali Land Extension based at the North Face Lodge deep within the park.
