Petermann Island

Deception Island
Deception Island
Sixty five degrees south. Petermann Island. Three researchers disappeared here a number of years ago and there's a cross to commemorate that. We saw adelie penguins for the first time, sitting on their eggs. Lots of people had never heard of snow angels, so I made it my business to push them into the snow and take photos.

The Lemaire Channel was spectacular. It is hard to capture the moment: massive peaked mountains, ice and freezing temperatures. At that point, the crew brought our champagne on deck to celebrate the furthest south we'd reached.

In the afternoon, we went on zodiac tours amongst the ice floes. Most of the time was being followed by, and following killer whales (orcas). They swam around us, under us and did some amazing acrobatics
