The morning started out earlier than normal with the Shackleton hike, a seven-mile-long hike along the South Georgia hillside. Some guests opted to stay behind and relax a little longer before going to shore for medium or short walks. All options were fantastic, and each had its benefits. Everyone saw fur seal pups, king penguins, and even some gentoos hiding in the crowd. At the end of the day, the weather was great, and those little fur seal pups were aggressively curious about everyone and everything that came close.

The afternoon was a little different. South Georgia being South Georgia presented some challenges, and it was not possible to go to St. Andrews Bay. The day was incredible anyway.
