Dundas Bay, Glacier Bay Alaska

  • Aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion
  • Alaska
Our day was spent exploring Dundas Bay, a secluded portion of Glacier Bay National Park. Everyone took turns exploring the bay by Zodiac or hike, and some even kayaked! This stunning bay was absolutely filled with life, both flora and fauna. The Zodiacs allowed us to get a closer view of otters, harbor seals, harbor porpoises, and more birds than we could count. Hiking in Dundas Bay gives one the sense of going on an adventure to a place where it is very possible no other human has travelled. There are no groomed trails to be found in this wilderness, so exploring the coast and old growth forest requires the mind of a pioneer on the quest for discovery. Clues to the inhabitants of this ecosystem are all around, if you know how to find them. After thoroughly exploring the bay, we motored over to the small town of Gustavus to bring aboard a very special guest! Kim Heacox, a true Alaskan and accomplished author, joined us for an evening of storytelling and song.
