Ushuaia, Beagle Channel

A beautiful sunny day in Ushuaia. The passengers left the vessel in good order, to be replaced by the next group eager to experience the southern ocean, its many moods and unique life forms. The ship was prepared for its voyage of discovery to the Falkland Islands and the crown jewel of the southern ocean, South Georgia Island.

The passengers boarded the ship, located their cabins and after lifeboat drill and other formalities, met the Captain his crew and the staff. The engines churned the water as Fram set sail down the Beagle Channel into the sunset. It will no doubt take everyone a day or two or become familiar with the workings of the ship and all its little secrets.
