Yakutania Point is a pleasantly easy, short hike that is a stone's throw away from the ship. There's a good chance that you will see some seals and possibly some humpback whales or even orcas out at the Point. Grab a bite in town and head out for a picnic and enjoy the sound of the waves, seabirds, and eagles.
