In the United States’ Wilderness Act of 1964, wilderness is legally defined as "an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." Today, exploring Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness onboard National Geographic Quest, we were indeed honored guests.
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.
