Chatham Strait

  • Aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion
  • Alaska

After two full days of exploring the northernmost area of our route, we turned south and cruised down Chatham Strait, in hopes of finding some whales. It was a beautiful morning and we were soon rewarded with our first views of these amazing leviathans. There were many single humpback whales feeding in Chatham Strait, along with several small groups, one that included a small calf! After enjoying these wonderful marine mammals for an hour or so, we continued southward, stopping at Kasnyku Falls, and then picking up our representative from the Alaska Whale Foundation at their headquarters in Warm Spring Bay. We continued our journey, finding more whales, and finally making an incredible after dinner stop in Red Bluff Bay, to view one last spectacular waterfall.
