Takatz Bay

Sep 09, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


The very first day of our sure-to-be-epic adventure from Southeast Alaska down the inside passage to Seattle was beautiful. A mostly sunny day began by introducing the expedition staff and the expedition plan. We learned about Zodiacs, how to avoid bear contact, and the proper way to paddle a kayak or stand-up paddleboard. After lunch, National Geographic Venture sailed into Takatz Bay and deployed small boats and kayaks for an afternoon of watersport activities.

About the Author

James Hyde

Naturalist

James is your typical free-range Pacific Northwest outdoorsy type. Born in Seattle and reared nearby on Vashon Island, he is most comfortable in slightly cold and damp weather. James joined the Lindblad team in July 2016 as a dive buddy and has been in love with expedition travel since. On his own he has traveled to Europe, Asia, and Australia, but with Lindblad he hopes to continue his adventures across the globe, searching out the beauties of the natural world. An avid scuba diver James can’t help being excited about whales, sharks, and pinnipeds, but he will also happily bend your ear about underwater slugs and invertebrates. It’s best just to humor him about these things.
