Antarctic and Falklands Cruise – Day 4 – Drakes Passage and Yankee Harbor, Greenwich Island

Paul S. Bryers, December 30, 2019

We completed our crossing of Drakes Passage early this morning after an uneventful night. Then there were the first sightings of icebergs in the distance and at last the South Shetland Islands, Antartica!

And our first spotting of a penguin (gentoo) diving in and out of the water. Hard to get a photo as they move so fast.

Our zodiac landing today was Yankee Harbor, Greenwich Island to see the Gentoo Penguin colonies and elephant seals. Cute penguins, grumpy seals!
