An update from the Expedition Team on the Sea Adventurer - December 27, 2015 on our Falkands, South Georgia and Antarctica expedition.
Sea Adventurer stopped at Saunders island and West Point in the Falklands islands today. On Saunders alone we saw five species of penguin but the highlight was the nesting black browed albatross. It was a privilege to see these birds close up.
