St Lazaria and Other Delights.

On Saturday’s Allen Marine Tours Cruise we not only saw whales (Click here to see whales.)  The reason for the trip was to go to St. Lazaria Island, a national wildlife refuge.  It is a beautiful volcanic island sculpted by waves and wind.  While we saw plenty of birds most of the species have fledged their chicks and have gone back out to sea.  But even with them gone it was a great day.

On the way to and from St. Lazaria we saw the trollers and seiners going after salmon.  We also detoured to see Sea Otters and some eagles.
