The day started with a visit to St. Andrews Bay – the largest king penguin colony in South Georgia. There are 150,000 nesting pairs of king penguins as well as nesting gentoo penguins, Antarctic fur seals, elephant seals, and a whole host of predatory birds. To their delight, guests came ashore to meet the fur seals and penguins for the first time. After a delicious lunch, the ship repositioned to the beautiful Drygalski Fjord, where guests viewed Larsen Harbour and Drygalski Fjord with their rich birdlife and amazing, unique geology.
