Nov 29, 2017 - National Geographic Explorer
The first full day of our expedition saw us tackle the infamous Drake Passage. Opinion is always divided regarding who wants a rough crossing versus who wants a calm crossing. However, we seemed to get the best of both worlds today: while the sea was rough (up to 20-foot swells), it was a following sea and the National Geographic Explorer handled it superbly. It was a classic birding day, with a total of six different albatross species seen!
