This morning, arrive at Dutch Harbor, site of a fierce WWII battle and now one of the world's most important fishing ports. Continue to the Baby Islands, just east of Unalaska, where dynamic tides offer exciting potential to spot sea otters and fur seals, as well as rare seabirds, both from the ship's deck and from Zodiacs.

Unga Island, AK, United States

Go ashore on Unga Island to explore a unique petrified forest of sequoia or metasequoia trees that were buried in a volcanic mudslide nearly 25 million years ago.

Kodiak Island, AK, United States

The second-largest island in the U.S., Kodiak is best known for its brown bears and its fishing industry. Less well known is its unique mix of Native Alutiiq and Russian-American history. Join your undersea specialist for a "dock walk" among the commercial fishing boats in Kodiak's inner harbor. Photograph the beautiful Holy Resurrection Church on a photo walk, or peruse native art and artifacts at the Alutiiq Museum. Later, explore one of the island's outer bays by Zodiac. (B,L,D)
