Desolation Sound

Oct 09, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


Today we headed towards the northern end of the Salish Sea. With a heading towards Desolation Sound, we pointed out wildlife, stopping to watch two humpback whales. After a hearty brunch, we explored Laura Cove and the surrounding area by Zodiacs, kayaks, and on foot. As the moon jellies drifted by, and the moon rose, we continued north towards our next destination and adventure.
