Kasnyku Falls & Iyoukeen

  • Aboard the National Geographic Quest
  • Alaska

What an amazing day we had! We woke to a lovely vantage of Kasnyku Falls just off our bow. Our undersea team headed out early in the morning for a dive just around the point from the falls and brought back footage to share of all the amazing critters that live just below the surface here. Sailing towards our afternoon anchorage at Iyoukeen we came across a number of humpback whales swimming near the shore. When we landed at Iyoukeen guests were able to hike up to the old gypsum mine pier and along the intertidal zone, while kayakers and Zodiac cruisers were treated to amazingly calm water conditions. We finished our fantastic day with views of a brown bear from the ship and a group of half a dozen humpback whales bubble-net feeding!
