We’ll paddle a pristine kayaking area this morning near North Sandy Cove, a very rich ecosystem that supports black bears, moose coyotes, and a plentiful marine environment. We kayak around the shores scanning for black bears and moose then paddle over to Puffin Island for a truly wondrous look at a low tide vertical intertidal zone. This zone is home to hundreds of sponges, periwinkles, whelks, sea stars, sea cucumbers and urchins just to name a few species who literally hang here awaiting the next high tide. Back on board the Sea Wolf we will head to South Marble Island to view a large stellar sea lion haul out and a seabird-nesting rookery from the Sea Wolf. Then we cruise onward to Dundas Bay. We head to the beach at Dundas where we can pick strawberries, learn about and taste native plants and revel in the glorious flower strewn meadows. Cow parsley, chocolate Lily’s yarrow, lupine, wild Iris’s, lily of the valley, and Indian paintbrush are among the few plants that brighten the splendid landscape here. We also stroll the beach following the tracks of otters, bear, moose and wolves. Our Alaska voyage continues up Dundas Bay learning about the native history and lore of this area. Dinner and this is our evening anchorage. Overnight on the MV Sea Wolf.
