In the early hours, National Geographic Venture made its way through Chatham Strait, turned into Peril Strait, and settled in Ushk Bay for the day’s activities. Massive smacks (groups) of jellyfish were observed in the clear sea water as everyone approached the shore in Zodiacs. Various levels and lengths of hikes took off over the tidal flats and many also spent time in the forest. Others chose to partake in kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding. After lunch onboard, the Global Explorers learned how to drive Zodiacs and then everyone who wanted to take the Alaska Plunge jumped into Ushk Bay. The ship sailed through Sergius Narrows on the way to our final destination, Sitka.
