Akademik Shokalsky

Deception Island
Deception Island
By 5 o'clock we were on board the Akademik Shokalsky. We found our lodgings. We would be living here for the next 10 days. Bob bunked with the guys. I took the top bunk in a cabin with two other females. One from Australia. The other from South Africa. Akademik Shokalsky can take on 47 passengers, we had 46; and an expedition crew of ten. It was absolutely perfect. Ths was an expedition not a cruise. We sailed out of Ushuaia Bay. Saw Puerto Williams, on Isla Navarino which is in Chile and is across from Ushuaia. Saw the pilot exit our vessel after leaving Argentinian waters.
