After staying around Simon’s Bay, Cape of Good Hope in South Africa for coming on to two months, the ship left to go to the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. After visiting Marion and Prince Edward Island, off of South Africa, the ship travelled to the Crozet Islands and then to Kerguelen Islands. The crew explored all around the Kerguelen Islands, very interested in its botany and birds on land as well as the marine life in the water.
