We arrived at the Antarctica Peninsula mid morning. It was blowing a gale, up to 66 knots. Made for a fun and interesting time on deck!
Scenery was amazing. Lots of icebergs and ice in the water off the coast.
Because of the weather, we could not land on the Peninsular itself or on an island just off the coast, Cuverville Island. Wind was blowing up to 50 kts and there was a big swell.
Instead, the ship cruised through the Gerlache Strait and Wilamena Sound.
Still lots of fun.Read more
