On the Western island, keep your eyes out for magellanic and gentoo penguins, as well as an encounter with water fowl and night herons. In addition, on Saunders you may be able to observe rockhopper, macaroni and king penguins, black-browed albatrosses and king cormorants.
In South Georgia visit the bay of Elsehul, home to an active fur seal breeding beach. From there, head to Right Whale Bay, Salisbury Plain, Gold Harbour and Cooper Bay. These locations offer good opportunities to see a wide spectrum of landscapes and wildlife, like the introduced elephant seals, king and macaroni penguins. At Fortuna Bay, you can also follow in the footsteps of the great British Explorer Ernest Shackleton and hike over to Stomness Bay.
Active scientific bases such as Poland’s Arctowksi or Ukraine’s Vernadskiy and historic bases such as U.K.’s Port Lockroy or Wordie House may also be stops. Adelie, chinstrap and gentoo penguins abound, and weddell, crabeater, elephant seals and the predatory leopard seal are often found in this region. Minke and humpback whales are frequent visitors and orca sightings are also common.
