When you book end a day with the Lemaire Channel, you know it is a good one. We had great walks, kayaking, Zodiac cruising, and even polar plunging. Penguins, seals, whales, and incredible ice. All with gorgeous calm weather and views of high peaks all around. Another perfect day in Antarctica.

Our time has come, the circle is closed. Twenty days ago, we left Ushuaia. Headed towards Antarctica, the infamous Drake Passage, and certainly some unknown. Now we return, after an incredible voyage to Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falklands, and a lot of ocean in between. Calm seas in the Beagle channel were certainly enjoyed, but it was a bit shocking to see trees and civilization. We did enjoy the sunshine, dolphins, and abundant birds. I think for many of us, we wished we were heading back out instead of into Ushuaia, but the memories we have created will last a lifetime.
