Today was another amazing day aboard National Geographic Sea Lion. In the morning we cruised through Wrangell Narrows, a beautiful channel filled with harbor seals, Sitka black-tailed deer, and countless bald eagles. After lunch we disembarked for various activities, including photo walks around the town of Petersburg, bike rides around the city, and hikes through old-growth forests and muskegs. A real highlight was learning about the medicinal uses of native plants from a local Tlingit naturalist. We talked about traditional uses of red cedar, Devil’s club, blueberry, and much more. We’re excited to cruise up toward Tracy Arm overnight, and are looking forward to the rest of our time aboard National Geographic Sea Lion!
