Today George Stoner was the first person to spot land (King George Island) after the Drake Passage!

This morning we saw our first iceberg, and arrived at penguin island for our first landing, and walked up and around the crater of a volcano. 

Saw loads of wildlife including:

  • Humpback Whale 
  • Chinstrap Penguin
  • Gentoo Penguin
  • Seals
  • Southern Elephant Seal

Weather is a complete change to the Drake Passage, now calm, sunny and visibility is good (between 10-20km) and no more seasickness. 

Today was the day we held a Scouts Own for Shackleton to commemorate 100 years since his death and are now having a celebratory lemonade.
