Drake Passage, 12/20/2021, National Geographic Endurance

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endurance
  • Antarctica

National Geographic Endurance made its way southeast today, across the Drake Passage toward the Weddell Sea. We crossed the Antarctic Convergence Zone and entered the Southern Ocean proper during the early afternoon. Colder seas and the first snow flurries of our voyage marked the crossing. The composition of bird species changed, too: fewer blue petrels and more Antarctic prions.
