At Sea. Cape Horn & The Beagle Channel

Jan 26, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


On our final day on board the National Geographic Explorer, we continued our journey north, towards Ushuaia. We were accompanied along the way by a multitude of seabirds including black-browed albatross and giant petrels. As we neared land, the fair weather enabled us to sail past the infamous Cape Horn where we caught a glimpse of this historic coastline. In the evening, we finally drew our expedition to a close as we pulled in to the dock at Ushuaia—the end of a remarkable journey.
