Land in sight
After leaving Puerto Madryn we first spent two days at sea. The first land we saw was Steeple Jason, a small island in the Falkland archipelago. This island is famous for having the largest colony of Black-browed Albatrosses in the world. An estimated 113.000 pairs of albatrosses breed on this little island. Unfortunately it was too windy to land and have a close look, but even from a distance it was a spectacular sight. They were mainly breeding along the shoreline and sometimes a little higher up, like in this hourglass-shape. Even though we stayed at a reasonable distance we still had quite a lot birds close to the ship, also giving nice photography and filming options.
