Drake Passage

Having sailed all night, we woke up to calm conditions along the Drake Passage. We are now truly alone, somewhere between the Pacific Ocean and Scotia Sea.

Today is a full sea day, and we have set our course on Elephant Island which is still another few hundred kilometers away.

A sea day gives our guests time to familiarise themselves with the ship and learn about the rules regarding visiting Antarctica. More importantly it's a perfect time to unwind and disconnect from civilisation and technology. Even getting this blogpost uploaded is quite tricky for us !


During the day, we organised our guests into different groups, and gave out our famous blue jackets.
