Departing Punta Arenas for the Emperor Penguins 2022

Our first weather window has arrived! And as soon as I finish this early morning post my group is going to be making its way to the airport for our private charter flight down to Union Glacier in Antarctica. From there we will assess conditions and look for a second weather window to fly by Twin Otter (about three and a half hours) out to the sea ice at Gould Bay where the Emperors will be waiting for us. The eve of the departure of any expedition is an incredibly exciting time and I am thrilled to be heading back to the Emperors in Antarctica. My hope of course is we get some incredibly dramatic conditions out at the colony. Bring on the blowing snow! See you on the return. Note: I will be offline until our return to Punta Arenas.
