Steeple Jason & Carcass Islands, 12/6/2021, National Geographic Endurance

Wow, what a day here in the Falkland Islands on the National Geographic Endurance. We spent the morning on Steeple Jason Island enjoying close sights of the world’s largest black-browed albatross colony. With approximately 160,000 breeding pairs it was truly a sight to behold. The afternoon was spent on Carcass Island where we were able to spot Magellanic penguins on the beach—our 8th penguin species of the trip—and enjoyed Commerson’s dolphins bow riding on our return to the ship. What a time to be alive.
