Jason Harbor & Fortuna Bay

Mar 16, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


Another splendid day on board the National Geographic Explorer in South Georgia. After a night basking in the incredible starry skies guests awoke within Cumberland Bay ready for a morning at Jason Harbor. Guests were presented with a host of options for the morning’s activities including kayaking within a lagoon alongside hundreds of fur seal pups and hiking.

After lunch the ship repositioned around the mighty coastline into Fortuna Bay for our first taste of a proper king penguin colony. This colony, situated in front of a glacier, hosts several thousand breeding pairs of kings.
