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.
