Holy smokes! What an amazing way to start our expedition in Southeast Alaska! Humpbacks before breakfast, bears fishing for salmon during hikes, and even more humpbacks bubble-net feeding in the afternoon: It doesn’t get much better than this.
National Geographic Sea Lion
Today our guests aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion awoke about halfway up the bay here in Glacier Bay National Park. We had ideal weather today as we cruised up to Johns Hopkins Glacier and then down the east side of the park. Bears, ice, goats, and orcas kept everyone enthralled throughout the day, only to finish the evening with a nice bonfire at Tidelines Institute in the Inian Islands.
