Explore the rugged inner islands surrounded by bands of pack ice within the Sea of Okhotsk. Seldom visited by westerners the wildlife is nothing short of spectacular. Ribbon seals, stellar sea lions, and large colonies of northern fur seals line the shores with Steller Sea Eagles, and massive numbers of seabirds overhead. The evening sky blackens as Crested Auklets return en masse with swarms of guillemots, puffins and fulmars feeding during the day. Kayaking from our base aboard the Spirit of Enderby each day is journey of discovery on this magical adventure.
