The Drake Passage, 1/27/2020, National Geographic Explorer

  • Aboard the National Geographic Explorer
  • Antarctica

We are nearing the end of our crossing of the Drake Passage and found ourselves reminiscing about our adventures to the dry, windy, white continent to our stern. Seas have been quite smooth as we plotted our way north and many of us found ourselves editing images, enjoying delicious food, chatting with friends, and continuously learning through talks about polar diving, visually documenting our journey, and the history of whaling. While many of us traveled from different places on the planet, we were bound by the desire to learn all we could and to both protect and explore these wild places.

Antarctica has been a wondrous place to experience nature, encounter amazing wildlife, and ask the big, important questions about the everlasting impacts of climate change and the human population as a whole.
