We’ve put together an Antarctica video to remember our time in this amazing part of the world and also to give you an insight into what it was like to be there. More than you can get from photos. You really need to see the penguins!
Read a wrap up of our Antarctica Trip including a summary of the wildlife we saw and also some final thoughts on Antarctic tourism. It was an amazing adventure!
Today was the day, we were going to visit Deception Island and have the opportunity to do an ‘antarctic plunge’ in Whalers Bay. Not as completely crazy as it sounds, due to the volcanic nature of the island, areas of the beach around Whalers Bay are actually warm if you dig down into the sand. […]
It’s getting cold down here but still so much to see. Today we meet some Antarctic Fur Seals and a lone chinstrap penguin plus our usual gentoo friends.
Another out of this world day. Today we saw minke and humpback whales, leopard seals, crabeater seals, gentoo penguins, and we finally also meet the Adelie penguins. Add to that more stunning scenery and icebergs.
Another out-of-this-world day. Today we visited beautiful Neko Harbour, with it’s huge colony of gentoo penguins. We cruised spectacular icebergs in Paradise Bay and meet the biggest Leopard Seal yet!
What a day! We took our first steps on Antarctica, sailed through stunning Wilhelmenia Bay and to top it all off saw seals, whales and our favourites the Gentoo penguins.
And we’re off! Our first Drake Passage crossing. Read about the fun and games of crossing the Drake Passage. One of us had a good time, one of us not so much. An exciting start to our adventure.
All Aboard! We boarded the MV Ushuaia mid-afternoon. No more time to research, no more time to buy any more warm clothes. For the next 11 days, this would be home. Join us on our trip to Antarctica!
