Drake Passage, 1/9/2020, National Geographic Explorer

  • Aboard the National Geographic Explorer
  • Antarctica

The Drake Passage was relatively kind to us today, with slackening winds and a dying (albeit confused) swell. That said, it was still a day for grabbing the nearest handrail. The birdwatching today was incredible: by the evening we had documented 14 different species of seabird. Even during our evening presentations, a wandering albatross cruised by the windows, almost close enough to the ship for us to reach out and touch it!
