Drake Passage

Today we continued our northward journey towards Ushuaia and enjoyed a calm Drake Passage. Although the day was not very sunny, the weather was ideal for birdwatching.

Several passengers spent long hours out on deck, scanning the waves for the agile fulmars, petrels and –naturally – the imposing albatrosses.

John Chardine will be leaving us tomorrow, so he also spent quite a while out on deck, enjoying the opportunity to shoot some seabirds – with his camera, naturally! Here are some of his wonderful pictures.
