National Geographic Quest spent the morning in the fishing village of Petersburg as the largest ship among a fleet of small fishing vessels. We then positioned south to Ideal Cove, a wonderful place to introduce everyone to the amazing temperate rainforest I call home.

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.
