Today was another exciting day for our guests aboard National Geographic Sea Lion – we were invited to explore a bit of Calvert Island, including the Hakai Institute. We began the day with an exploration of a small hidden lake via kayaks, and a lovely guided tour of the research institute. After lunch we returned to the island to hike; we offered a variety of hikes to our guests and off we went. Everyone was able to cross the island to the west, ending in a stunning white sand beach. Some guests continued past the first beach and reached a 360-degree panoramic lookout — everyone agreed that it was well worth the trek.

We ended the packed day of adventure with cocktail hour, recaps, and a toast to all the wonderment of today!
