It was a beautiful morning that began with a brown bear sighting on the way into Sitkoh Bay. Some of us went on interpretive hikes and some went kayaking. Our underseas specialist gathered invertebrates to model a tide pool, and a few guests even went swimming (albeit briefly).

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.
