Petersburg, Alaska, 5/15/2022, National Geographic Sea Bird

  • Aboard the National Geographic Sea Bird
  • Alaska

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!
