Drake Passage

  • Aboard the National Geographic Explorer
  • Antarctica

National Geographic Explorer headed north from Antarctica, leaving guests with time to finally reminisce on an incredible trip around South Georgia, the Falkland Islands, and Antarctica. Our good luck with weather continued as light winds from the stern helped push us across the Drake Lake, allowing for great wildlife-spotting opportunities. Highlights included fin whales, humpbacks, beaked whales, and a huge number of seabirds. As always, the naturalist team organized entertaining and informative talks, filling gaps in the day’s schedule and postponing any attempts to categorize and sort the thousands of pictures taken over the last three weeks.
