Feb 13, 2018 - National Geographic Orion
Early in the morning the call came to our cabins “we have killer whales ahead, it’s a good sized pod!” So as most of us scrambled to get dressed, grab cameras and binoculars, and rush to the outside decks, National Geographic Orion slowly worked its way to a closer range. Soon the ship was surrounded by the animals, and they approached us to get a look, some swimming right under the bow! The highlight, however, was when the group cased and killed a penguin right next to the ship; amazing. Later we did a Zodiac cruise in Borgen Bay, followed by an afternoon landing Port Lockroy and Jougla Point.
