Fortuna Bay is 3 miles (5 km) long and 1 mile (1.6 km) wide, on the north coast of South Georgia Island, not far from Antarctica. It is home to numerous seals. The supervising biologists guiding our trip told us of the firm rule that we are not allowed to approach seals or other wildlife closer than 15 feet (5 meters). However, if the wildlife approached us, we were instructed not to run away, just to be still and cautious. Some of the seals were more curious about us than afraid of us, and came close. Sometimes too close. Especially if the photographer had any food in a jacket or pants pocket. More photos below.
