After a fantastic couple of days exploring the Falkland Islands, we headed east over the vast Southern Ocean aiming for that spectacular portion of the Andes that emerges from the deep to form the mountains and island of South Georgia. These very rich and productive waters are home to some of the most incredible wildlife on the planet, many of which we had the opportunity to learn about while observing them from the Bridge or the outer decks. Several presentations were offered throughout the day, ranging far and wide from the exploration of the depths of the oceans to the ever-present human conflicts that reach even as far as these extreme latitudes.
