Oct 29, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer
National Geographic Explorer continued its journey east toward the legendary island of South Georgia. Still reeling from our encounter with about 1,000 southern right whale dolphins the day before, the ship was abuzz with guests comparing photos and stories of the experience. Crossing through the Antarctic Convergence, where the Southern Ocean overtakes the temperate waters of the South Atlantic, we felt a chill in the foggy air, letting us know that we were getting closer. The lectures for the day included a plankton talk, emphasizing the importance of the small life within our oceans, and guest speaker David Sibley, birding legend, demonstrating a live drawing.
