Christmas Eve's Excursions
Antarctica Adventure with Sea Kayaking

"I was just fishing with the guys!""I was just fishing with the guys!" (Cynthia Isaf)
Today is a bit snowy
But it doesn't stop us from doing what we do best
Get on those Polar Pioneer zodiacs
And visit the Gentoo penguins and their nests

There's no walking on that brown path
The Penguin Highway it is called
So we maneuver through the knee-deep snow
As we try our best not to fall

A humpback whale, up close and personal
Gave the kayakers a spectacular treat this day
And some of the kayaker pairs pushed themselves to the limit
Paddling fiercely to be beside it every step of the way

Hydrurga Rocks was a special place
Both kayakers and zodiac travelers came to see
Penguins walking in every direction
And seals snoring ever so peacefully

Our cold and windy afternoon excursion
Would take us through canyons and cliffs soaring a mile high
With waters choppy, only our experienced kayakers
Decided to give it a try

All of us on the zodiacs
Felt as if we were in a Lord of The Rings movie
Drifting through these jagged rock formations
Whipped by the oceans fury
