Lowe Inlet and Princess Royal Island, 9/8/2022, National Geographic Venture

  • Aboard the National Geographic Venture
  • Alaska

After spending the night anchored in Lowe Inlet, we awoke to almost clear skies and beautiful low clouds hanging over the surrounding mountains. It was wonderful to start our day with perfect weather, a morning of kayaking, and exploratory walks in this lush rainforest! During lunch, the kayaks and Zodiacs were raised back onboard, and National Geographic Venture started cruising toward Princess Royal Island to look for wildlife and spectacular scenery. After one black bear sighting and multiple humpback whale encounters along the way, we were cruising along the shore of Princess Royal Island and looking intensely for more wildlife. We encountered numerous beautiful and dramatic waterfalls. The weather was spectacular, and the staff and guests spent the entire day outside, basking in the sun and scenery!
