Queen Charlotte City

  • Aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion
  • Alaska
Today our day in Queen Charlotte City was filled with a variety of interesting activities to enjoy. Some chose to spend their morning on a guided walk in the lush forest learning about native uses for medicinal plants. Others went on an adventure to Jungle Beach, taking a chance to explore the deeply expansive low tide. They were able to observe exposed anemones, crabs, cockles, clams, oysters and more. In the afternoon, some of us took advantage of an opportunity to explore the town while others decided to work alongside local artists to weave red cedar bracelets. The expedition dive team was also out during the afternoon, gathering video footage of the marine environment near the ship. The tide was rising quickly, bringing in a rich abundance of nutrients to feed this healthy environment. It was a wonderful day off the ship in Queen Charlotte City that we celebrated over a lovely dinner on National Geographic Sea Lion .
