Nov 24, 2018 - National Geographic Orion
This is our last day of the expedition of our voyage. We have spent our morning along the coastline of the Antarctic Peninsula, and the afternoon at Deception Island.
This morning, we Zodiac cruised in a small bay, a cove that has been named after our company's owner and creator: Sir
We have had very changeable light. Upon arrival, the light was fantastic like in a painting, the sky partly sunny, and the air was dry. Once we were out, it was snowing, and the visibility worsened a lot. From the Zodiac, we have spotted orcas, a minke whale, as well as Adélie and gentoo penguins. Of course, many icebergs of all sizes and shapes were seen along the way. During the afternoon, we visited the whaling station at Deception Island. Some did a walk along the beach, others were more interested in the buildings.
