The World begins its Antarctica Journey
The infamous Drake Passage was unusually calm as we sailed south for Antarctica from Ushuaia, Argentina.
The weather was very different on arrival at Deception Island for our first Antarctic landing…but our amazing crew was undaunted.
The Lemaire Channel was one of the scenic highlights of the voyage.
Neko harbor was the first landing site on the Antarctic continent and provided a rare hike up the snow fields and for some, the opportunity to slide down.
But the real attraction of Antarctica is the wildlife…birds, penguins, seals and humpback whales.
