National Geographic Sea Bird spent the day exploring the area around Petersburg, a Norwegian fishing village. Activities included short and long walks through the muskeg, which is a bog with some unique plants including dwarf shore pine trees, the only pine tree that grows in Alaska. Three rounds of guided Zodiac tours explored the harbor and the different types of fishing boats and marine life around the docks. A bike ride was offered during the afternoon, covering 5.5 miles roundtrip through the town and along the coast with a short stop at Sandy Beach for photos. We ended the day with an all-you-can-eat crab feast!

What a beautiful way to end this epic two-week voyage aboard National Geographic Sea Bird . The sun finally decided to come out, we got glimpses of the iconic coastal mountains of Southeast Alaska, and the wildlife came out to party. We haven’t run this trip since 2019, and it’s wonderful to have completed it!
