What a start to the trip—penguins, albatross, and sunshine! Guests were just getting up as the ship navigated into her anchorage off West Point Island, home to thousands of albatross and rockhopper penguins. After stretching their legs, guests were treated to amazing views of both at the main colony.
The afternoon was just as spectacular with more sunshine and penguins on the Carcass Islands. This time we saw Magellanic and gentoo penguins. Several walking options were offered around the beautiful island, culminating in a huge spread of tea, cakes, and cookies at the farm.
