Drake Passage, Towards Ushuaia, 2/5/2020, National Geographic Explorer

  • Aboard the National Geographic Explorer
  • Antarctica

Today we awoke on board National Geographic Explorer with the White Continent at our stern. We were sad to say goodbye to such a magnificent place but were relieved to have generally calm seas on the horizon.

We had a day filled with fascinating and informative lectures from our naturalist staff as we relaxed and learned in the lounge. Days at sea allow us to look back at the fantastic adventure we just lived and start to go through the numerous photos we collected during our stay down south.

A day full of diverse lecture topics kept our guests rooted in the lounge eager to learn more. We had topics ranging from naturalist Eric Guth’s personal journey documenting ice caves and landscape photography advice from our National Geographic photographer Andy Coleman, the presentation “A Personal Path Towards Climate Solutions” with Bud Lehnhausen.

The day ended with a Recap from our whale researchers aboard, telling us the things they learned from the data they collected during our voyage, as well as a fantastic dinner from our wonderful chef.
