The ship awoke as we navigated along the north coast of South Georgia towards Grytviken. As the fog lifted, it unveiled 10-15 humpbacks feeding close to shore. Once at our anchorage, we were treated to a briefing by members of the South Georgia Heritage Trust before we were let loose to explore the historic whaling station.

After repositioning further south beyond some huge icebergs, we spent the afternoon Zodiac cruising to observe the largest king penguin and elephant seal colony in St. Andrews Bay.
