The second morning of our expedition found us in the glassy calm of Dundas Bay surrounded by fog-shrouded mountains. Sea otters, marbled murrelets, and a brown bear patrolling the intertidal were our welcoming committee. We explored this part of Glacier Bay National Park on foot and by tours in our expedition landing craft. In the afternoon, we visited nearby Idaho Inlet for kayaking, paddle boarding and walks near Fox Creek. Post dinner we marveled at a congregation of humpback whales in the middle of Icy Strait as the sun set over Glacier Bay.
