It was a beautiful sunny day starting in Rudyard Bay. Kayakers and paddleboarders explored the shoreline and we even got to see a coastal brown bear lumber out of the forest onto the beach. Next up we held the famed polar plunge with an impressive array of dives, bellyflops, and backflips into frigid Alaskan waters. Next, we picked up the anchor and headed through Owl Pass into the scenic God’s Hideaway of God’s Pocket in Misty Fjords National Monument. On Zodiac cruises, we explored a luscious salmon stream, nosed up to powerful waterfalls and were awed by towering granite cliffs above.
