Its been a hectic few days since leaving Wanaka as Trevor Street and I travel south to meet up with the rest of the Oceanwide Team aboard MV Plancius.
Tomorrow morning we will head down with the other new onsigners to Plancius and then get quite busy. Reporovisioning of the ship, shifting passengers bags onto the ship and then safety briefings before the Passengers arrive and we get underway down the Beagle Passage, out into the Drake Passage and 2 1/2 days sailing south to the Antarctic Peninsula.
Along the way we can expect to see all kinds of birdlife and sea life as we get close to colder waters. Whale, Seal and Penguin sightings will increase as we cross the Antarctic Convergence, pass by the Sheltland Islands and finally arrive down near Cuverville Island.
From there Trevor and I will kick off into Mountain Guiding mode as we take two trips out each day onto the magnificent Antarctic Peninsula.
