Early risers enjoyed the stunningly beautiful scenery of Errera Channel along the Antarctic Peninsula. Snowy mountains were the backdrop to icebergs, humpback whales, and penguins, and when we turned into Andvord Bay, there were multiple tidewater glaciers. We made our first landing on the Antarctic continent at Neko Harbor, where we walked up a snowy hillside to a gentoo penguin colony. At Paradise Harbor, conditions were glassy calm, and we boarded Zodiacs for cruises among huge icebergs, seals, porpoising penguins, a pair of feeding humpback whales, and a very curious minke whale.
