Today was a day filled with exciting opportunities for exploration! We started the morning on Pebble Island with an early landing filled with Peale’s dolphins, before going for long walks along the coastline and interior.

 

In the afternoon we were able to go on a hike to “The Neck” on Saunders Island, an area with sei whale bones and nesting cormorants. The Undersea Team went on a SCUBA dive, exploring the shallow kelp forests on the coastline of Pebble Island, and were surprised to see several Peale’s dolphins diving with them towards the end of their dive.
