Whale Watching in Antarctica

One of the biggest surprises and experiences awaited for us in Wilhelmina Bay! An unexpected visit for an amazing experience…

Cuverville Island (Antarctica)

Our first landing of the day was at the Cuverville Island. We had two choices – either do a painfully steep hike up to the top of the mountain to see panoramic views of the landscapes or spend time walking near the island shores to see the colonies of Gentoo penguins. Guess what we did?!

Landing on the Useful Island

We kicked off our New Years with a landing to Useful Island, an amazing island situated in the middle of the Gerlache Strait off the coast of Graham Land. Intense hike, plenty of penguins and amazing view, what more could we ask 🙂

Jougla Point and Port Lockroy

Pre New-Years eve celebrations kicked off with our fabulous journey across Peltier Channel and visiting Jougla Point filled with penguins and their young ones and Port Lockroy.

The Magical Peltier Channel

Peltier Channel is a channel 6 nautical miles (11 km) long, in a NE-SW direction, seems like its filled with pure white milk. Just magical!

Mikkelsen Harbor – A snowy bliss

The white snowy Mikkelsen Harbor kicked off our second day in Antarctica. Teeming with penguins and various other wildlife, it was a visual delight.

Yankee Harbor – Our step on Antarctica

We kicked off our expedition in Antarctica a little early (thanks to calmer Drake Passage) by landing in Yankee Harbor. A rocky harbor, home to scores of penguins and seals, our first foot in Antarctica couldn’t be any better! Woot!
