SA: Antarctic Experience Day 2 (part 3)

Sunday, January 22, 2023

After a lunch of tomato bisque and a three-cheese grilled sandwich, I was ready to get back outside. Saw two unexpected sights right before we got to Cuverville Island and the Errera Channel – a pod of orcas and a motorized sailboat. The orcas were fast so only got a photo of the last one. I would not have wanted to sail these waters in such a small boat.

We were not the only ship in the area. There were several expedition ships and they had tenders and zodiacs taking people back and forth to the land.

Finally saw some birds flying –

And more icebergs –

As much as I would have liked to keep staying outside, it was time to get ready for the evening activities.
