Paradise Harbor & Port Lockroy

Feb 08, 2019 - National Geographic Orion


Today was actioned-packed, from the bright Antarctic dawn to the late Antarctic dusk. We cruised through Paradise Harbor in the morning, where we caught glimpses of icebergs bathed in the crisp sunlight of the early morning. We boarded Zodiacs for close-up views of shags. We visited the museum at Port Lockroy and the nesting gentoo penguins at Jougla Point, and this was all before cruising through the Lemaire Channel as the evening light illuminated the peaks. Watching the light transform this rugged landscape from dawn to dusk brings on a sense of joy not easily matched.
