Fish Island & Prospect Point

Feb 11, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


Making our way back north after spending a great day below the Antarctic Circle we came across many beautiful sights. The morning was spent at Fish Island and Prospect Point, enjoying the location through both hikes and Zodiac cruises. From there we sailed towards the Grandidier Channel in the hopes of finding a suitable place for an afternoon landing. However, in true expedition fashion we had to change our plans when we discovered the way to the site was blocked by fast ice. Instead we had a great afternoon parked in the fast ice where we had a barbecue followed later by a mighty chilly polar plunge!
