This morning, National Geographic Explorer sighted Cape Horn. With binoculars, we could see the lighthouse and monument that marks this infamous part of the world. After negotiating some of the islands that make up Tierra del Fuego, we entered the Beagle Channel around lunchtime.
Today we listened to presentations by naturalist Emily Mall, ‘A Whale of a Story,’ National Geographic photographer David Wright about his photographic adventures around the world, and naturalist Alex Searle on, ‘Selk’nam People of Tierra del Fuego.’
With fair weather, we sailed through the Beagle Channel, spotting wildlife as we went and admiring stunning views of mountainous peaks across Argentina and Chile in the distance.
We arrived in Ushuaia this evening. We enjoyed farewell cocktails and a fantastic slideshow of images from guests and staff taken throughout this incredible expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula.
