Quintessential Antarctica! As you can see in the photos, today the weather was gorgeous, the wildlife was charismatic, and the adventures brought us panoramic views.
National Geographic Endurance
National Geographic Endurance moved west today into the relatively milder waters of Falkland Plateau—moving out of the Southern Ocean and into the South Atlantic. Foggy conditions frustrated our sea-watching efforts, but we still saw some humpback whales and hourglass dolphins despite poor visibility. By evening, the fog lifted enough for us to enjoy views of wandering albatross and their smaller cousins, including various petrels.
