Day 1 - 14th of July Glacier




Once all the Zodiacs were together, we slowly moved along the shoreline enjoying the cliffs and the geology and the birds, including Glaucous Gulls and some Puffins, a rainbow adding to the scenery.

We then headed towards a resting bear that was just above the beach on a grassy hillock. From off shore we had some great views of the bear that would occasionally look up and yawn before going back to sleep..

We then headed towards the glacier for a great cruise along the glacier front with the amazing ice forms and colors, the roosting kittiwakes dwarfed by the sheer size of it all.
