Today, we sailed by an ice floe covered in fluffy emperor chicks before the clock hit 7:00 am. We were able to get even closer via Zodiacs and cruised around observing the elusive chicks. Everyone had a chance to feel what it’s like to be a penguin during the beloved polar plunge into subfreezing water. Our hotel department put on a barbecue on the 8th deck, and we dined beneath the Antarctic sun. Guests enjoyed kayaking amongst icebergs in the afternoon, and we ended the day by finding the massive 3,000+ emperor penguin colony while back aboard National Geographic Resolution after dinner. What a day!
