At Sea off the coast of Brazil

Oct 24, 2017 - National Geographic Orion

Today was a perfect day at sea for anyone interested in observing marine life.  Leftover swell from yesterday added some roll, but no wind made for mostly glassy conditions.   Marine mammals, seabirds, turtles, sharks, and even flying squid were all enjoyed from the bow today.
