This morning, National Geographic Venture was anchored in an inlet tucked away in the beautiful Great Bear Rainforest. We dropped our expedition craft and started the morning with an adventurous purpose. We toured the glassy waters and along the edge of the giant conifers in Zodiacs. Our efforts were fruitful, as we discovered two black bears and many bird species. We had the option to explore the waters of this inlet via kayak or paddleboard, much more intimate and relaxing ways to get in touch with this peaceful environment.

Back on National Geographic Venture, we continued exploring the waterways. From the bow of our ship, we scanned for wildlife. A mother humpback and calf spent time with us as we marveled at their presence. It was a great day here in British Columbia aboard National Geographic Venture.
