Dundas Bay, Glacier Bay National Park

  • Aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion
  • Alaska
Today was our full day to play around in Dundas Bay, one of the fjords just west of the main Glacier Bay, in Glacier Bay National Park. We’re lucky because the regulations in Dundas Bay allow us to do hikes, kayaking and Zodiac cruises, which we can’t do in the main bay under the permit system! So, after breakfast we sent off hikers first, then cruisers, and finally the kayakers to explore different parts of the area. It was an overcast day, but again refused to rain, and we were easily able to do two rounds of each activity, one in the morning, and one after lunch! There were also some great wildlife sightings along the way – many sea otters, harbor porpoise, harbor seals and a very large Alaskan brown bear! We were so lucky to have the chance to explore this incredible park in this way!
