A Pair of Pods of "Killer" Whales on Paradise Bay / Springtime at Comandante Ferraz"

Img92_small On this special edition of Visions / The Antarctic Tapes...Herb Malsman, 12 M/S Explorer companions and Larry Hobbs take to their Zodiac for a chance encounter with a passing pod or two of "Killer" Whales on heavenly Paradise Bay...(Segment #1.) Then, (on Segment #2) Herb and company set sail for Admiralty Bay, King George Island and Comandante Ferraz, a Brazilian Research Base...to see what's cookin' and take an impromptu, (and somewhat unauthorized) walking tour of the facility. Guests include: members of the wintering party of '94...and Peter Skog. We anticipate arriving in the mid-to-late-morning, but our exact arrival time is entirely dependent upon the ice conditions we encounter as we steam northwards during the night, (November the 16th.) Our Sunrise is: 0342 / Our Sunset is: 2136 Our "Sea Quote" for the day is from Lord Admiral Nelson- "I own myself one of those who do not fear the shore, for hardly any great things are done in a small ship by a man who does." Farewell Explorer. Goodbye Sir Wally.
