A superb day below the Antarctic circle on the National Geographic Resolution began at 0400 after a call from the bridge to alert me to the beautiful light and gorgeous mountain reflections on the water as we transited “The Gullet,” a narrow passage between islands in Marguerite Bay. On a Zodiac cruise after breakfast, we enjoyed sunny and calm conditions with great wildlife viewing of a flock of Antarctic shags in particular. After lunch a visit to Jenny Island allowed us to spend time at the southernmost haul-out of some very charismatic, noisy (and smelly!) elephant seals. A short walk to stretch our legs provided stupendous views of the mountains surrounding Marguerite Bay.
