As we cruised by Lecointe Island this morning, we were surprised by calm waters and large numbers of humpback whales. We hopped into Zodiacs to cruise through the channel by Lecointe Island. We admired large peaks, glaciers, and humpback whales resting and demonstrating feeding behavior.

In the afternoon, we headed for Orne Harbour. Some guests went ashore to hike to Spigot Peak near a chinstrap colony. Others Zodiac-cruised, soaking in the ice and viewing chinstraps swimming nearby.
