Takatz Bay, Alaska

Jun 07, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


We awoke in Takatz Bay. Entering the back of the bay by expedition landing craft, paddleboard, and kayak, we were greeted by abundant waterfalls pouring from dramatic granitic domes. The final day of our trip included exciting wildlife sightings on both land and in the water, as well as hikes past magnificent old growth spruce and hemlock on the Lake Eva trail. Laughter shared among new friends and a stunning sunset concluded the trip.
