The Season’s Best Sightings
The 2012-13 A&K Antarctica cruising season delivered more than its share of once-in-a-lifetime highlights. On the first Classic Antarctica cruise of the season, Geoffrey Kent himself came aboard for his first journey to the White Continent in 20 years. Seasoned 'Le Boreal' staff reported surprisingly calm seas, giving guests an unusually smooth ride through most of the voyage. And Oreo cookie celebrated its 100th anniversary by sending a shipment of its signature treats to Antarctica — along with a web-enabled "penguin cam" to aid in scientific research.
- Brown Bluff
- We woke up and realized that no matter how excited we were yesterday morning, today might top the cake. This is the day we would make a continental landing at a place called Brown Bluff. Before long we were able to see the buzz of activity as Adélie penguins by the hundreds squabbled and ran about until one made the decision to leap into the water. read more
- Lemaire Channel
- Around After dinner, ‘Le Boreal’ approached the northern entrance to the legendary Lemaire Channel. This 7-mile-long and one-mile-wide channel separates Booth Island from the Antarctic continent with dramatic, towering snow-covered mountains lining the route on both sides. Under a dramatic Antarctic sunset, we gathered out on deck to watch as Captain Etienne Garcia maneuvered the ship through this narrow passage. read more
- St. Andrew’s Bay
- It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be in the presence of 100,000 pairs of king penguins, the largest colony on South Georgia. Once past groups of loafing elephant seals and a rather exciting stream crossing, we hiked along the beach past fur seals who were exhibiting the entire spectrum of possible moods.
