Alaska’s Shumagin Islands

  • Aboard the National Geographic Orion
  • Arctic

National Geographic Orion spent the day at sea sailing toward Dutch Harbor. It was a great day filled with wildlife, educational presentations, and fantastic views. In between time spent on the bow looking for whales there were presentations about World War II in Alaska, the geology of the Aleutian Islands, sustainable fishing in the Bering Sea, and the sea birds of the Aleutians. While on the bow, everyone was treated to fin whales, humpback whales and minke whales. The entire time sea birds like shearwaters and puffins surrounded the ship.
