We had another day of gorgeous weather here in Southeast Alaska, with sunshine and blue skies! The morning was spent onshore at Halleck Harbor bushwhacking, hiking, tide pooling and kayaking. We really enjoyed all that Alaska has to offer today. While everyone was enjoying the land and topside of the sea, our undersea team went on a dive at the mouth of the harbor, where there were so many incredible critters to see. We sailed south through the afternoon down Chatham Strait, where our whale-scouting efforts paid off. There were so many humpback whales on the horizon, it was hard to know which direction to look. A truly remarkable day!
