Embarkation Day

Rainbow over the Beagle Channel
Rainbow over the Beagle Channel
Our boarding time wasn't until 16:00 so we spent the morning of Embarkation Day touring the Terra del Fuego National Park. It was amazing to see the mountain tops of Chile from where we stood on the other side of the Beagle Channel. We also got to stand at the end of the Pan American Highway...maybe traveling that from north to south will be our next adventure!

Our ship was the Akademik Ioffe and once on board we immediately headed to the outside decks to enjoy the gorgeous Beagle Channel as we departed Ushuaia. The clouds were low, the sunlight was amazing and there was a rainbow welcoming us out to sea. We were off with a bang!
