Days at sea are wonderful. Today we had an eventful day in anticipation of our arrival to our next exciting stop on this journey across the South Atlantic, the one and only South Georgia. Lucky to have calm following seas continuing throughout the day, we enjoyed learning about the history and wildlife unique to this region from our expedition team, including stories of Captain James Cook, the seal species that call this place home, and the adaptations that animals have mastered to survive in cold environments.

As the air and sea temperatures continued to drop, we decontaminated our expedition layers in between views of seabirds and cetaceans around us.

Our day was not yet over, with more to learn about king penguins from our resident South Georgia science expert, Jamie Coleman. We are now more ready than ever to see these amazing species over the coming days.
