Our first day on South Georgia did not disappoint. A magical place that is far removed from everywhere and yet rich beyond anywhere. The island and islets that make up this place have warmer air then the Antarctic continent and yet the same rich waters, teeming with life, which fosters all kinds of delightful animals. We were fortunate enough to make a morning landing at Right Whale Bay, where we encountered fur and elephant seals, king and gentoo penguins, glaciers, mountains, and majesty. In the afternoon we visited the historic and stunning Prion Island where we met wandering albatross and light-mantled albatross.
