This morning we make our way along the Zhupanova river by zodiac. This journey allows us to explore a river habitat which is common in Kamchatka. Steller's Sea eagles are known to nest in the lower reaches of the river.
During the night the Spirit of Enderby will enter Avacha bay which is one of the greatest natural harbours in the world. On the shores of the bay is Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, the capital and administrative centre of the Kamchatka region.
We end our expedition today, however due to outbound flight schedules we are pleased to be able to offer two disembarkation options:
