2019 Agulhas II Trip Report

Report and photos from Shirley Squibb

The Agulhas II visit was very quiet this year due to most of the visitors being islanders and workers. Although the Tourism Department sent out a programme of activities for the duration of the Agulhas visit to all new comers, visitors only partook in two walks, to the 1961 Volcano and the Bluff. Weather allowed for a day out to Nightingale where visitors enjoyed the local wildlife and hikes about the island. Cafe da Cunha, now located at the Prince Philip Hall, was opened for business and refreshments were enjoyed by all. Time always passes too quickly and before long the community had to say goodbye to family and friends.
