Today we started an eventful day in Girard Bay just south of Lemaire Channel with a Zodiac cruise in dense fog and calm water full of glacial ice. During lunch, we headed north, back through Lemaire, and up into Paradise Bay where we did a polar plunge amongst a few humpback whales. After dinner, we had our first Antarctic mainland landing at Neko Harbor, where we experienced a big calving event from a glacier located close to the landing site.
