Day 4 of Ventus Australis – Fjords of Tierra del Fuego

Todays program:

In the night we left the beagle channel and entered open sea heading cape horn. It is windy and the ship is rolling.

In the morning we reach cape horn. Waves are too high to put the zodiacs safely on the water and bring the average passenger to the coast. Captain decides to check the south entry …

The south entry doesnot work because of wind and waves, too. So we go for breakfast and leave cape horn in direction Wuhaia Bay. We get a certificate for reaching Cape Horn anyway.

In the afternoon we go for the challenging hike in Wuhaia Bay (which means beautiful bay):
