For incredible wildlife viewing and scenic adventures, we dropped our small landing craft in Pavlof Harbor and escorted intrepid individuals on a long overland bushwalk. Others took shorter walks for more in-depth exploration. We also deployed kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for some peaceful self-propelled time on the water. During the afternoon we found feeding humpback whales off Morris Reef, and after dinner, we were treated to an epic waterfall on Admiralty Island.
National Geographic Quest
A fine and adventurous day was awarded to us on our last chance to explore Southeast Alaska on this voyage. We anchored in the morning at Ushk Bay just between Baraknof and Chicagof Islands. We spent the morning exploring the vast beach, meadows, and forests that make this area so special and wild. Salmon were making their final push upstream while the less lucky fishes lay as carcasses along the streams. We have learned and seen so much in our short time in Southeast Alaska and it has never disappointed.
