Just before breakfast was served, National Geographic Endurance entered King Haakon Bay with its many glaciers and spectacular scenery. High winds prevented a landing, so we enjoyed a slow ship cruise in the historic bay. We passed Cave Cove, where Shackleton first landed after his epic voyage from Elephant Island. Once the ship left the bay, we turned south and headed down to Annenkov Island for an incredible Zodiac cruise. We spotted albatross, penguins and seals. We also saw multiple waterfalls and sea caves. To top off a great day, we spotted blue whales, a mother and her calf. Our mighty ship sailed north toward the Falkland Islands as we admired the spectacular scenery. Just another great day in South Georgia!
