At Sea

Nov 10, 2017 - National Geographic Orion


Our first full day on board National Geographic Orion has been spent at sea, sailing toward the Falkland Islands. We have taken advantage of the fair weather and calm seas by spending time on deck watching the many seabirds following the ship. Seabirds weren’t our only companions, however, as later in the afternoon we had an exciting encounter with our first whale!
