At 4:30 in the afternoon land was spotted; land with snow and ice covering it. It was quite strange to travel for almost two complete days without seeing land. Imagine being in a city at the edge of the earth, travelling 24 hours without seeing land and finally seeing land again. These were only the Shetland Islands which are reached before the Antarctic Peninsula.
We sailed between Robert and Greenwich Islands.
Because the Drake Passage was crossed in record time, we were able to take our first zodiac landing.
We dropped anchor at Aitcho Island (HO Island).
There they were; soo many penguins, Gentoo and Chinstrap!!
Also saw fur seals, Great Southern Petrel nests and Pale-faced Sheathbills
