Aboard National Geographic Sea Bird, we awoke to a misty morning, and soon after, some lucky folks spotted a humpback whale slowly breaking the surface of the water. After stretch class and breakfast, we prepared for the morning activities of kayaking and an exploratory bushwhack of this less-visited corner of Chichagof Island. The afternoon afforded a chance to continue our whale viewing and later, we toasted our lovely time together aboard Sea Bird.
National Geographic Sea Lion
Today our guests aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion awoke about halfway up the bay here in Glacier Bay National Park. We had ideal weather today as we cruised up to Johns Hopkins Glacier and then down the east side of the park. Bears, ice, goats, and orcas kept everyone enthralled throughout the day, only to finish the evening with a nice bonfire at Tidelines Institute in the Inian Islands.
