What a spectacular day in the Weddell Sea. Guests awoke as the ship navigated through the ice flows of Antarctic Sound into the Weddell Sea. There were few icebergs not covered by Adelie Penguins and everyone was keen to get off the ship and see more of this charismatic species. Ashore guests were able to observe the huge colony of 100,000 pairs whilst others Zodiac cruised the ice flows in search of penguins and seals. The afternoon was just as packed with Zodiac cruising alongside tens of humpbacks among tabulars making the perfect appetizer for an emperor penguin and the polar plunge.
