The bridge team of National Geographic Quest navigated Chatham Strait from the northern end of the inside passage to Kuiu Island. We made Halleck Harbor our home for the day, where guests enjoyed kayaking and “bushwacking,” our term for exploring the temperate rainforest off trail. That evening we sailed south looking for wildlife and we were rewarded! We saw dozens and dozens of humpback whales in every direction. We even got to see bubble-net feeding and many breaching individuals! What a fantastic and unforgettable day!
