Neko Harbor & Paradise Bay

Dec 27, 2019 - National Geographic Orion


We awoke to another beautiful Antarctic day in Neko Harbor, but today the sun shone and warmed us as we made our way towards shore. There we viewed more Gentoo penguins, and practiced sliding down snow like one. After lunch, we headed towards Paradise Bay, which showed us how deserving it truly is of that title. After Zodiac cruising and exploration there we returned to the ship tired but full of memories and incredible moments.
