George Island and the Inian Islands, 7/20/2022, National Geographic Venture

  • Aboard the National Geographic Venture

Today was a quintessential Southeast Alaskan day, and we have the soaking wet rain gear and smiles to prove it. We began our morning on George Island. We explored the forest and beaches of this special place and hiked to a World War II gun site that was decommissioned in 1944. After a small reposition during lunch, we found ourselves anchored off the Inian Islands and ready for an incredible afternoon of exploring these rich and diverse waters on a Zodiac cruise. As we warmed up again on National Geographic Venture, humpback whales were sighted in the distance, and a lone male orca graced those of us up late as darkness began to set.
