DAY 6: Glacier Bay National Park or Outer Bays
We spend the entire day amidst the coves, fjords, tidewater glaciers and majestic mountains of Glacier Bay National Park. You’ll see glaciers that end abruptly at the water’s edge and observe them “calving” — tons of ice crashing into the sea — accompanied by an exhilaratingly thunderous sound. Mountain goats scaling the peaks as well as harbor seals, Steller sea lions and puffins are some of the creatures we may observe. A visit to Tidal Inlet may bring the sight of brown bears lumbering up the hillside. A native Tlingit interpreter joins us onboard to share the legend of the area. (B,L,D)
Please Note: The 2019 National Geographic Sea Lion departures will have a modified itinerary and will not be calling on Glacier Bay National Park. Guest will instead get an opportunity to explore the rarely visited outer bays - either Dundas Bay or Fern Harbor where you will have the opportunity to go on naturalist led coastal hikes looking for evidence of moose or wolves, kayak into secluded coves or cruise around sea stacks via expedition landing craft.
