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.
