Cape Horn and our Final Day on the World Explorer

February 7th

semi-overcast 38 °F

This morning we woke to blue skies, sunshine and relatively smooth sailing. I was able to walk the 8th deck track for about 45 minutes after breakfast pretty much all by myself. This morning, we are heading to Cape Horn with permission to get as close as possible as a way to make up for our missed day in Antarctica. As we approach Cape Horn for the second time, the clouds, and wind are starting to prevail and our view may not be any better than what we experienced on the Stella Australis. We’ll see.

At 11am we had a briefing on the debarkation process tomorrow morning and we will be among the first groups to leave at around 8 am and head directly to the Ushuaia airport. At 11:30 we were able to have a tour of the “bridge” which is where the Captain and his team navigate the seas for us. I have never been in a bridge room, and it was pretty interesting. Got a couple shots of our Captain at work as well as his patron Saint Nicholas.

Just a few shots from our last day at sea! We hate to have it end! It has all been quite magical! And the final shot is waking up at 6 am to find us docked back in Ushuaia!
