Sub-Antarctic Cruise – Final days

7th March, 2019.

Another sea day.

Lovely skies.

The food on the ship was absolutely exemplary. French chefs, French wines and mostly French cuisine could not be faulted. On this evening we had a special French cheese degustation.

Heading to Antipodes Islands, another group where landing is not permitted so the Zodiacs were pressed into service again.

Our first sightings of Erect-crested and Rockhopper Penguins.

Farewell to Antipodes Islands.

The last island on our itinerary was Bounty Island but the weather was quite bad and very little could be seen so the Captain decided to make a leisurely trip towards Dunedin where we would be disembarking early the next morning.

Synchronised flying.

Sunrise over Dunedin as we made our way back to Fryatt Street Wharf for disembarkation.

All too soon this part of our adventure was over and we were sitting in Dunedin airport awaiting our flight to Auckland.
