Port Stanley and Falkland Islands
During the morning we approach Falkland Islands and in the early afternoon Ocean Atlantic will cast anchor the sheltered natural harbor of Port Stanley. Utilizing our Zodiacs, we will land in town center, and take a leisurely stroll through the streets of Stanley.
On the following day we will make landings – weather permitting – at two of the islands’ many magnificent wildlife spots.
At sea toward South America. Port Madryn and Disembarkation.
We are now into the last leg of this adventurous voyage, heading for Argentina’s “Wildlife Port” Puerto Madryn. Sheltered by the famous Península Valdés deep into Golfo Nuevo, Puerto Madryn was a favoured port for – among others – the Welsh settlers, who came here in the middle of nineteenth century.
After a hearty farewell to vessel and crew, we disembark in the morning after breakfast.
