Drake Passage & Beagle Channel

Jan 07, 2018 - National Geographic Orion


Despite our trip coming to a close today, everyone was in good spirits as we were lucky enough to cross yet another “Drake Lake” into the Beagle Channel. Favorable weather aside, it was truly a grand expedition to look back upon after so many fortunate encounters that seemed like a never ending dream. We sorted through and edited photos in order to contribute to the Guest Slideshow this evening, and what a series of events to reflect on. Between the fantastic shows put on by humpbacks and killer whales to the multitudes of penguins and their chicks, and not just any penguins, but two molting emperors no less!
