Leconte Bay & Petersburg

Aug 05, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion


National Geographic Sea Lion spent the morning exploring LeConte Bay by Zodiac. The bay is filled with icebergs and other ice bits that have calved from the LeConte Glacier at the head of the bay. Guests were able to go on shore and take photos with the icebergs that washed ashore at low tide.

After lunch, we docked in Petersburg, a Norwegian fishing village, for a variety of walks around the city. Some guest opt for flight-seeing excursions over glaciers. Guests took advantage of free bike rentals to explore town on a five-mile loop along the coast. The weather was unusually warm – high 70s with clear blue skies! This is very rare in normally cloudy and rainy Alaska!
