Useful Island, Melchoir Islands and Drake Passage High Seas!

This is the last sub-gallery. In the morning, we landed at Useful Island/t was named by whalers as It was in the middle of the Gerlache Strait, and they could look for whales in many bays and channels from there. We then headed for an hour zodiac cruise in the Melchoir Islands, in Dallmann Bay. We passed a couple of Humpback Whales along the way. After our zodiac cruise. we headed back out into the Drake Passage for 2 1/2 days of high seas on our return. Waves were 30 foot plus, with sustained winds of up to 50 knots and gusts up to 78 knots. The ship was really rocking during that time. At one point everyone was asked to stay in their cabins as too many people were falling and getting hurt!
