WHAT YOU VISIT
Named for a schooner that ran aground in the shallows, this resplendent bay boasts picture-worthy wildlife encounters and an endless supply of rocky, wind-swept terrain. From the ship, a minibus will transport you to nearby Hadassa Bay, where your three-and-a-half mile-long nature trek begins. Your expert local guide will distribute a tour-specific illustrated checklist and give a general background to Falkland birds and what you might expect to see on this tour: dark faced ground tyrants, Falkland thrush, upland geese, long-tailed meadowlark, Falkland flightless steamer duck, rock cormorants, southern giant petrels, sooty shearwaters, Magellanic penguins, black-throated finch and up to as many as 30 other species.
The abundance of birds at Hadassa Bay is a photographer's dream. Set against a background of clear, blue sky and sparkling blue water, you're sure to have a myriad of photo opps. The birds are free to roam; many of the are tame and will "pose" for photos.
WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
As you make your way through the charming and peaceful town of Stanley, you'll pass a scattering of colorful houses and picturesque farms tucked along the rolling verdant hills that border Stanley Harbor.
