Alaska’s Semidi Islands, 7/17/2019, National Geographic Orion

As almost a bonus, our Wednesday involved venturing to a group of islands which no Lindblad-National Geographic vessel has ever visited. The Semidi Islands are a few small dots on the map of the Aleutian Islands on the Pacific side of the chain. Nestled between Kodiak and the Shumagin Islands, this small archipelago is the breeding side of a vast majority of Alaska’s seabirds. Our morning was spent Zodiac cruising amongst the raucous calls of cliff dwelling birds on Aghik Island, and for the afternoon we simply about-faced and landed on the larger island of Aghiyuk for hikes and tundra siestas. The evening was topped with a delicious dinner from the galley team and a fantastic show from the ship’s crew.
