Today is the first full day of our trip aboard National Geographic Seabird —we all woke up to a sunrise whose beauty rendered the whole ship quiet. We explored Tracy Arm and enjoyed a magnificent view of South Sawyer Glacier. Once our ship was positioned we lowered Zodiacs and set off to show our guests the treasures of this area; the face of the glacier, the landscape, and the various wildlife that we might (and did) find. We saw heaps of harbor seals, and a huge population of Artic terns being very vocal as they feasted on small fish. We spotted three mountain goats along the side of the fjord — and we didn’t even need binoculars. Afterwards we continued to search for wildlife and waterfalls. We closed the day with cocktails and laughter. What an absolutely fabulous day!
