Brown Bluff – Located on the Antarctic continent, Brown Bluff rises 2,450 feet above an ashen beach which is littered with bizarrely shaped boulders. Adelie and gentoo penguins make their home here, as do skuas and pintado petrels, which nest near the top of the cliff. Kelp gulls fill the air with perpetual sound and motion.
Deception Island – As you approach Deception Island through Neptune's Bellows, a channel just wide enough for the ship to navigate, southern fulmars and pintado petrels soar overhead. Weigh anchor inside a volcano whose collapsed cone was filled by rushing seawater.
Lemaire Channel and Pleneau Island – Cruising the beautiful Lemaire Channel, keep watch for the humpback and minke whales which frequently spotted in the area. This narrow channel is one of the most visually impressive areas of the Antarctic Peninsula. Steep mountain peaks jut out of the sea on both sides, and the waters are often choked with icebergs and frequented by crabeater seals. A stunning labyrinth of grounded icebergs lies in the shallow waters west of Pleneau Island, presenting a superb Zodiac cruising experience. Crabeater and leopard seals haul out on the ice, and elephant seals and gentoo penguins occupy the island itself.
