Zodiacs in Antarctica
We sailed for days to cross the Drake Pass and arrive at Antarctica. There I saw ice, penguins, more ice, and more penguins and it was very cold. That was my trip to Antarctica. Did you think that you would get off that easy?

“Antarctica exploration is seldom as bad as you think, seldom as bad as it sounds but this journey has beggared …
The anticipation started building about a week before I was set to leave – at home reading information about the trip and it hit me – I am going to Antarctica and once I made this trip, I will have been all over the world and have been on all seven continents.Hearing horror stories about how cold it is down in the Southern Ice Box I …
Tierra Del Fuego
The next day in the freezing rain the Antarctica Group (82 people) boarded buses for a tour of Tierra Del Fuego National Park. As we were walking through the park enjoying the view and looking at huge beaver dams, a group of us from the bus noticed another person from the bus walking around with two rocks and banging them on trees. After a few …

had never left me yet.” Dante
The Drake Shake or the Drake Lake is how many who have made the 2 ½ day journey down and 2 days back from Antarctica have describe the sailing through this passage. The Drake Passage (even today) …

Leader was the first to cross the North Pole from Russia to Canada on skis and the Assistant Leader skied to the North Pole when he was 20 and he …
“Antarctica is a separate world. One can feel its presence as it approaches, sailing south from more temperate climes, Standing on the deck, one may follow the reeling albatross, feel the drop in temperature, the bite of the wind, and the pounding of the waves. Yet it is the presence of ice,from the first occasional fragments, escalating in …
One Big Step
On 21-Nov-2007, I set foot on Antarctica at Portal Point at 61-30 S - 61-46 W. What an amazing feeling it was when I first set foot on to Antarctica. I can only compare the moment to how Neil Armstrong must have felt when he set foot on the moon. Though I could not muster up any profound statements to mark this occasion, I just sat in the snow and …
The Research and Whaling Stations
The following days were spent moving from place to place with a morning landing and afternoon landing. During the evening the next day’s itinerary would be handed out and even before the ink was dry the weather, ice, or other events made that itinerary obsolete. So the day’s events were always a surprise and even then it was subject to …
Wintering Over is the term used for those crazy intrepid few who remain in Antarctica during the
winter season (basically from March to November). During this time it remains as dark as midnight, constant gale force winds, and as cold as the last lady I tried to pick up. â˜º So by the time Spring comes around these people who have just …
