At Sea, Toward the Falklands

Mar 18, 2017 - National Geographic Explorer

With the wind at our stern, the National Geographic Explorer continued westward toward the Falkland Islands. With calm seas, but enough wind to make it worth the while of seabirds in the area, our guests enjoyed views of the wandering albatross circling our vessel showing off its record holding wingspan. Taking advantage of the downtime, presentations were given on topics as diverse as plankton, seabird conservation, and how to better process the many images collected from our time on South Georgia.
