There is no better way to wake up on board than with a wildlife sighting announcement. This morning, humpback whales were spotted just off the bow. Guests and naturalists aboard National Geographic Venture enjoyed their morning coffee while watching whales breach. Morning operations included kayaking and standup paddleboarding with sea otters, exploring the forest with naturalists, intertidal walks with our undersea naturalist, and photography walks with our certified photography instructor. We continued our whale watching with more humpback whale sightings in Frederick Sound throughout the afternoon. Many guests enjoyed a cozy, rainy afternoon of playing games, reading, and enjoying conversation and presentations in between wildlife sightings.
