7th June, 2017.
Early in the morning we briefly stopped off at Bartlett Cove to pick up a National Park Ranger and a native Cultural Heritage Guide before proceeding into Glacier Bay, containing 8 tidewater glaciers and a haven for wildlife.
The wildlife certainly was in abundance.
We saw our first brown bear of the trip.
The magnificent Margerie Glacier.
Being a small vessel, we were able to get quite close to the face of the glacier and, with the engines cut, the silence was quite eerie.
On our return to Bartlett Cove, we were treated to plenty more wildlife sightings.
We docked at Bartlett Cove, where the ranger and guide left us, allowing the passengers to spend around 2 hours exploring around the small outpost.
