Our day began at George Island with various hikes and some tide pooling. Although we were in the temperate rainforest again, this island forest seemed more primeval. We saw amazing examples of where nurse logs once fell and gave life to many.

The tone of morning fell hushed and graceful upon those on deck as we cruised into Misty Fjords National Monument & Wilderness. Following breakfast, we donned our rain gear and stepped aboard Zodiacs for a scenic exploration. In the afternoon the mist descended further, but provided peeks of waterfalls and tall, glacially sculpted mountains. Many of us opted to explore via kayak, and others, via Zodiac. Our evening concluded with Captain’s Dinner and a bittersweet farewell of shared photos and films.
