Tintikun Lagoon and Glubokaya Bay

  • Aboard the National Geographic Orion
  • Arctic

National Geographic Orion spent the morning along the Kamchatka Coast in Tintikun Lagoon. Everyone boarded Zodiacs and went ashore to hike in the tundra. As the hikers explored the land, the dive team slipped beneath the waves to investigate what lived below. They discovered kelp, eel grass, and even a large king crab. In the afternoon the shipped moved to Glubokaya Bay, once home to a bustling herring fishing village. The village is now abandoned but is host to several Kamchatka brown bears that live in the area. The adventurous expeditioners kayaked through the bay, hike through the brush on shore, and cruised the shoreline by Zodiac. At the end of the day some brave souls choose to beat the Kamchatka heat by plunging into the frigid waters of the Bering Sea.
