We spent an incredible day exploring the area of SGang Gwaay in the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Reserve, and Haida Heritage Site. It was a day that many have looked forward to for most of the expedition, and we were excited to explore this area and learn from the Haida watchmen who care for this special place. Groups split up throughout the day to visit important sites both on land and on the water.
National Geographic Sea Bird
In the spirit of exploration, National Geographic Sea Bird pulled into Jackson Passage, a beautiful spot in British Columbia, to view whales and invertebrates from expedition landing crafts and kayaks. In the afternoon, thanks to rough seas and the motion of the ocean, we were all well reminded we were on a boat. A highlight of the day: diving in a new place and finding some beautiful—albeit small—hidden gems, right underneath the kayakers.
