What an incredible first day in South Georgia. After making the crossing from South America, we were all excited to reach South Georgia…and wow, it delivered! We had perfect weather to stroll through the historical whaling station at Grytviken, and we encountered fin whales from the bow of the ship. To cap off an already spectacular day, we visited Gold Harbour to see thousands of king penguins. What a start to our trip!
