Silversea Expedition Cruises To GEOGRAPHIC HARBOR

GEOGRAPHIC HARBOR

Geographic Harbor is a superb hidden natural harbour within the Katmai National Park. It is well known for its wildlife and wilderness values, but it was a cataclysmic event that lead to the preservation of the area. In 1912, a huge volcanic eruption on the Alaska Peninsula devasted the landscape. One valley of ash, fumeroles and steam was named The Valley of a Thousand Smokes. The National Geographic Society came to study the event and successfully lobbied for the area’s protection. View more

One of their expeditions put Geographic Harbor on the map and it was named after the society. People have lived in the area for at least 9000 years, including native Alaskan Alutiiq people, Russian fur trappers and American adventurers. The area was evacuated after the 1912 eruption, leaving nature on the peninsula to slowly recover. At Geographic Harbor little evidence of eruptions remains except the dramatic volcanic mountain landscape and estuaries of eroded volcanic sediments. Nature abounds in Geographic Harbor. The waters have many fish, including Sock-eye Salmon who gather in summer. Fish attract Bald Eagles to the harbour surface, and Harbour Seals to hunt in deeper water. Sea Otters dive for shellfish while other intertidal molluscs fall to Black Oystercatchers. Gulls and crows scavenge for scraps. Large Brown Bears are sometimes seen foraging for berries, roots and sedges ashore, or for clams at low tide. But, as for all wildlife, no sighting is guaranteed. This is a harbour where the life is truly wild.
