Day 16 & 17 - Strait of Magellan and the Chilean Fjords

rain 8 °C

We spent the next 2 days cruising.

On the first day we sailed from the Strait of Magellan into the open sea (Pacific Ocean) for about 5 hours and then into Strait Nelson the start of the fjords.
The camera doesn't pick up the views very well, but it's a combination of the fjords and the Lake District.

In the early hours of the second day the ship sailed back in the open sea for another 5 hours and then entered the Ladrillero Channel. At midday, the ship sailed back into open sea for an hour and then into the Darwin channel.

The points where the channels and open sea meet seem to be the best points to view whales and we saw some more water spouts from whales.


We joined in the late afternoon circuits class on both days, although it can be a little unsettling to see the ship moving as you exercise.
