Per cultural specialist Daniel Odess, who's currently aboard  National Geographic Resolution  on our Northwest Passage: Greenland to Alaska expedition,  the captain of the National Geographic Resolution described August 2 as “the best day for viewing bears he had experienced in a long career of Arctic work.” In Alaska, Naturalist Adam Ü captured his own sequence of unbelievable wildlife images: a pod of humpback whales engaged in bubble-net feeding, which he describes as “unquestionably one of the most spectacular animal behaviors anyone can witness.” Get Inspired By Photos, Videos, Webinars, Stories, And Exclusive Offers.
