Mikkelsen Island and Spert Island, 1/5/2022, National Geographic Resolution

  • Aboard the National Geographic Resolution
  • Antarctica

We spotted whales while kayaking around enormous blue icebergs today. As we participated in a thrilling polar plunge in the icy waters of Mikkelsen Harbor, we saw porpoising penguins amidst even more whales. We enjoyed a thrilling Zodiac ride through the narrow cuts of Spert Island, and… can you guess yet? Still more whales! Finally, after a long and magical day, we sailed into the sunset… accompanied by whales, of course.
