Guests enjoyed a lazy morning on board National Geographic Orion as the ship navigated through Dallman Bay amongst the towering tabulars. After a morning of sightseeing and eating, guests were keen to get off the ship with several guests opting to kayak – for the second time this trip – among the tranquil Melchior Islands. A calmer but equally as stunning day was the perfect preparation for a night of partying with the world-famous Orion Crew Show.

Our voyage began in tumultuous seas, but by morning, the famed Drake Passage had calmed, settling into seas that rolled rather than rocking our hull. It is difficult to think of a more appropriate start than this. As we sail towards a land that at first glance seems harsh and unforgiving, but may reward adventurers with fortitude. Here now among the albatross and petrels, we find ourselves beyond the scope of civilization. What better place to be?
