Early in the morning, around 4:30 a.m., we were woken up unexpectedly by our expedition leader’s voice: Killer whales had been spotted! The early birds enjoyed watching them for about 20 minutes. After breakfast, we sailed through the emblematic Lemaire Channel, but we left when we discovered the area’s poor visibility. Instead, we ended up in Paradise Harbor for Zodiac cruising. There we met there a sailing yacht that had crossed the Drake Passage in 4.5 days with hurricane winds! We also saw an Argentinian research station that’s manned during summertime only.
