Stiff winds carry us towards mainland South America. Hundreds of shearwaters and albatross take advantage of the breeze and swirl around us, showing off their aerial mastery. Despite the seas, National Geographic Resolution slices effortlessly towards the Beagle Channel.

Soon after we raise Argentina to our starboard, the ocean begins to subside, allowing us to carry out our last programs and presentations aboard. As the afternoon progresses, we take in the incredible landscape we left a mere three-weeks ago. We’ve seen incredible places and things, and Tierra del Fuego only adds to that list.

Filled with stories and memories, we wrap up our voyage with festivities aboard and reflect on the truly incredible experiences we’ve had together. Though our voyage was several weeks, we’ll be sharing it for the rest of our lives.
