It was another beautiful day in Southeast Alaska. There was a blue sky over Saook Bay as the Zodiacs were launched and everyone prepared for a morning of exploration. Several adventurous souls went on bushwhack hikes through the temperate rainforest on Baranof Island. Everyone was on the lookout for wildlife or signs that the wildlife had recently been in the area. There were also tours of the bay by Zodiac, investigating the crystal-clear water and the life below. In the afternoon, the National Geographic Venture cruised through Peril Strait. Killer whales were sighted off the port bow and everyone found a spot on the ship’s deck to watch the whales swim by. It was a fantastic end to another sunny Alaska day.
