Hanus Bay, 7/16/2021, National Geographic Quest

  • Aboard the National Geographic Quest
  • Alaska

We woke to a bank of fog as we slid slowly into Hanus Bay, giving us lovely sea and sky images. We saw dozens of marbled murrelets floating on the surface and “Jack” Silver, one-year old sexually premature salmon, jumping from the water. After breakfast, we kayaked or hiked the trail seeing eagles, brown bears, wildflowers, and the first of the delicious salmonberries. Our afternoon is spent cruising and watching for wildlife all the way to our journey’s end in Sitka.
