The Explorer II – our home for the next week.

Isn’t she a beauty! 436 feet of luxury accommodations and first class service. Oops, wrong boat-sorry!

The town of Ushuia in the background, our point of embarkation

View from the top of the boat

We saileld the Drake Passage on a beautiful day

We were on a modern boat with all spacious upper deck for wildlife viewing. This paid off when we say the humpback whales feeding. 

I tried to climb to the top for better photos, but the crew was having none of this

Lets take a mini tour of the inside

I wonder why those chairs are chained to the floor?

Hmmm, these vomit bags were not there when we first boarded the ship. They placed them strategically throughout the ship only after we left port. I changed my mind- I want to go back home!
