Drake Passage

Dec 16, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer

It was our first full day at sea since we departed the white continent of Antarctica on our journey home. Although a bittersweet return, a relatively kind transit through the Drake Passage so far has our spirits up. The day was full of rest and recuperation from a very full schedule in Antarctica. As we sailed northward, we enjoyed interesting lectures on history, photography, and natural science.

About the Author

James Hyde


James is your typical free-range Pacific Northwest outdoorsy type. Born in Seattle and reared nearby on Vashon Island, he is most comfortable in slightly cold and damp weather. James joined the Lindblad team in July 2016 as a dive buddy and has been in love with expedition travel since. On his own he has traveled to Europe, Asia, and Australia, but with Lindblad he hopes to continue his adventures across the globe, searching out the beauties of the natural world. An avid scuba diver James can’t help being excited about whales, sharks, and pinnipeds, but he will also happily bend your ear about underwater slugs and invertebrates. It’s best just to humor him about these things.
