Rounding the Antarctic Sound in the northeastern most Antarctic Peninsula, huge tabular icebergs announce your arrival to the Weddell Sea, where Shackleton’s ship Endurance was famously trapped and crushed. Cruises during late summer have the best chance of charting a safe course through the ice-clogged Weddell Sea, and if the ice flow is too thick, cruises maybe diverted to clearer sailing around the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula. In the Weddell Sea, you'll spot Antarctic fur seals & southern elephant seals as you glacier hike & kayak along the icy shoreline. Camping is available on some cruises and sites are decided based on prevailing ice and weather conditions. Explore the islands of Dundee, James Clark, Ross Island, and Devil Island's large Adélie penguin rookery and, if lucky, a view of Mount Erebus.
