23rd of January 2015 Lindblad Cove / Antarctica 63°03,5’S; 059°29,0’W
Before breakfast this morning we cruised through a very special area called Lindblad Cove, which is located in Charcot Bay at the Antarctic Peninsula.
The cove was named in commemoration of Lars-Eric Lindblad, the pioneer of expedition cruising / tourism. With the little red “Lindblad Explorer” he was the first to ever take passengers on a cruise to Antarctica and other remote areas of our planet. His company was called Lindblad Travel. Here on board the “National Geographic Explorer” everybody is very fond of super scenic Lindblad Cove, which is framed by glaciers that are reflected in the still waters, on which icy bits are scattered around.
By the way, the National Geographic Explorer is owned by a company named Lindblad Expeditions. Get it???
