It takes almost two full days to transit from South Georgia to the Falkland Islands archipelago. Onboard National Geographic Explorer, this time can be occupied in many different ways. For some it was a time to catch up on the thousands of images captured while exploring the sub-Antarctic Island of South Georgia. While at South Georgia, we were so occupied with our daily activities that many had not even peeked at what their photos had captured. Most people were quite happy with their results, and anxious to see what other guests had accomplished photographically.

A full slate of shipboard presentations were also available, for people to enjoy and enhance their learning about the areas through which we’re traveling. Others spent time on the Bridge, checking on our progress across the Scotia Sea. Some ventured out on deck to the bow, or the aft sundeck, to watch or photograph the seabirds passing by.

All in all, it was a delightful day at sea. We’re looking forward to the Falkland Islands ahead.
