This morning, view one of the most written about and photographed Victorian houses in California, the Carson Mansion. Drive through Northern California's Redwood National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with trees more than 1,000 years old and over 300 feet (90 metres) tall. Arrive in Coos Bay and enjoy the evening at leisure.
After a leisurely breakfast, join a sea life cruise where you will keep an eye out for sea life and marine birds as the onboard naturalist, your Local Specialist, tells you all about your surroundings. With your free time this afternoon, maybe explore Newport's historic waterfront.
Visit the award-winning Mount St. Helens Visitor's Center, dedicated to the active Ring-of-Fire volcano that erupted in 1980. Learn about the legendary blast, an eruption so colossal that it spewed ash into 11 states, as you watch a reenactment of the event and experience interactive exhibits such as a step-in volcano model and working seismograph.
Venture west to the rugged coast of Olympic National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, the park contains three distinct ecosystems. Then meet Harvest Moon, a Local Specialist, who shares with you the tribal legends and stories of the Quinault people who have long called the Pacific Northwest home.
This morning, your choice of sightseeing gives you a chance to enjoy a visit to the EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum, a non-profit organisation dedicated to fostering the creativity that inspires contemporary pop culture or make the trip to the top of the Space Needle, the iconic landmark of the great Pacific Northwest. After some down time, join your newfound friends for a Farewell Dinner toasting to your exciting northwest adventures.
