As National Geographic Venture made its way close to shore in Pavlov Harbor, one of our naturalists spotted a brown bear on the beach and we were able to observe it for quite some time before breakfast. In the morning casual, moderate, and bushwacking hikes were on offer as well as a Zodiac cruise. Everyone had a chance to partake in both activities throughout the morning.

After returning to the ship for a delicious lunch and choosing activities for Petersburg tomorrow, National Geographic Venture sailed down through Chatham Strait. Before recap, we made a photo stop at a beautiful waterfall. It was a perfect way to wrap up the day.
