Continue around Cape Aialik (pronounced "I-al-ik") into Aialik Bay to view Holgate Glacier. Spend time near the glacier to watch for calving ice.Cruise out to the Chiswell Islands or Cape Resurrection (depending on weather conditions), where thousands of Alaskan seabirds like puffins, kittiwakes, and cormorants come to nest. Pause close to the seabird nesting areas and Steller sea lion colonies; sea otters, bald eagles, and mountain goats are also commonly spotted along the route. A National Park Ranger will be aboard to provide a detailed narrative on the history, ecology, geology, and wildlife in the area.
