The Season’s Best Sightings

South Shetland Islands
This morning revealed falling snow, and just enough for a few snowball fights before breakfast. The South Shetland Islands — ice–clad Nelson Island and Robert Island — appeared out of the gloom by mid–morning, marking our first glimpse of Antarctica. A layer of low cloud obscured the mountain peaks but the glaciers could be seen between rocky headlands. read more
Goudin Island
Soon after breakfast, we approached Goudin Island off the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. Bundled up warmly in as many clothes as could we could manage, we set out on a Zodiac cruise. Over the course of the hour–long excursion, we had the opportunity to look at the sights from sea level and at close quarters. There were ice floes and small icebergs showing endless shapes and subtle coloration. We also saw all three local penguins and all three local seals. read more
Half Moon Island
As we sailed out of Moon Bay, some humpback whales were spotted and Captain Garcia brought us close to a mother and her calf that were diving for krill. “Indescribable” was a word often uttered. Certainly, it was difficult to find adjectives to describe the splendour of the scene. It’s worth coming to Antarctica if only for a single morning like this.
