Seno Garibaldi, Chilean Fjords

Nov 05, 2017 - National Geographic Orion


The Beagle Channel stretched out before National Geographic Orion as the breakfast bells rang. We spent the first part of the day cruising through the waterway, taking in the finest scenery Patagonia has to offer, with incredible weather. After lunch we moved up Seno Garibaldi Fjord to make a landing on a small island in the midst of floating glacial ice. Here we took hikes and paddled kayaks, for those so inclined. Back aboard we enjoyed cocktails on the bow and the ship moved close to the glacier for an epic view of calving and ice-gazing.

About the Author

James Hyde

Naturalist

James is your typical free-range Pacific Northwest outdoorsy type. Born in Seattle and reared nearby on Vashon Island, he is most comfortable in slightly cold and damp weather. James joined the Lindblad team in July 2016 as a dive buddy and has been in love with expedition travel since. On his own he has traveled to Europe, Asia, and Australia, but with Lindblad he hopes to continue his adventures across the globe, searching out the beauties of the natural world. An avid scuba diver James can’t help being excited about whales, sharks, and pinnipeds, but he will also happily bend your ear about underwater slugs and invertebrates. It’s best just to humor him about these things.
