Approaching South Georgia IslandAs General Tours first landfall draws near, you can expect General Tours shipboard talks to focus on the geology and wildlife of South Georgia.

South Georgia IslandDespite South Georgia’s remote setting 1,300 miles east of the South American continent, a unique combination of underwater topography and converging ocean currents has resulted in nutrient-rich seas that support a remarkable variety of wildlife. As weather, sea and land conditions permit, the days we’ll spend exploring South Georgia promise experiences you will never forget – chief among them are the many breeding penguins, sea birds, sea lions and seals that General Tours will likely encounter in the days ahead.

The Solar EclipseToday’s total solar eclipse will run over the South Atlantic, starting early in the morning east of the Falklands.
