Brown Bluff & Devil Island

Feb 13, 2020 - National Geographic Explorer


We awoke today on the east side of the Antarctic Peninsula, inside the Weddell Sea. We started the day with Zodiac rides at Brown Bluff, which offered our guests a chance to see a colony of Adélie penguins and massive ice! We watched as many Adélie chicks entered the water for the first time, and some their last, as a few leopard seals eagerly awaited greeting them.
