Cape Horn and the Beagle Channel

Nov 28, 2019 - National Geographic Explorer


As National Geographic Explorer journeyed into view of Cape Horn, we knew that our voyage was soon to come to a close. With all the miles we have traveled and all the wildlife we have seen behind us, guests spent the day marvelling at the green shores of South America after weeks in polar waters. From the holy grail of encountering emperor penguins in uncountable numbers to the varied marine mammals we saw on beaches and surrounding our vessel—this trip has been one for the books.
