Jan 09, 2018 - National Geographic Orion
The relaxing nature of a day at sea is so often dashed by inclement weather conditions. As it were, the Drake Passage, the area of water betwixt South America and the Antarctic Peninsula, is notorious for just such weather conditions and just such hopes of relaxation being dashed. Fortunately for us all aboard the National Geographic Orion, the Drake Passage was a mild sea at most. We were introduced to the staff and crew, enjoyed lectures on photography, and began to learn about the continent and its conservation. Gentle waves rocked the ship as she steamed south, carrying our expectations and excitement into the eternal daylight.
