At Sea: Attu to Kamchatka

Jun 27, 2019 - National Geographic Orion

National Geographic Orion spent the day cruising through the open ocean, headed for Russia! Leaving Attu and the United States in its wake, the ship closes distance on the Kamchatka Peninsula of the Russian Far East. On board the day was filled with informative lectures and looking for wildlife. The sea birds stole the show as they glided just over the tops of the waves. A few luck searches were rewarded with sightings of fin whales and short-tailed albatross.
