Soon after seeing the Southern cross in Beagle Channel, we enter the "Drake Shake"; since then things have rolled about, people are seen doing the watusi, and some we just don't see at all. Food is served on slip proof linen! By nightfall we have found our sea leggs.

By nightfall, we have our sea legs, the crowd of 80, is mostly back packers types from all over the world. In between all the non-activity, we have lectures on the sea life, krill (the base of the food chain), an introduction to the albatross, petrels and fulmars who follow our path.
