Last night: almost no wind and we near two feeding Humpback whales. They are not bothered by our presence and take in huge amounts of water to filter out the krill. It’s snowing and visibility is low. Who will see the first ice? Around 10:30 pm the snow clears and at the same time we see the mountains of the South Shetland Islands and three huge icebergs. We go slowly, the little penguins like small dolphins all around us.
Early this morning we dropped anchor at Barrientos Island.
