This morning is the furthest south we have been so far (and we are the furthest south of any cruise ship currently in Antarctica)! After spending the night floating anchor-less in a sea of icebergs we awoke to a world of purple, grey and white. It was deadly silent and eerie like another planet.
This morning’s activity included a zodiac cruise around the bay during which we got up close to seals lounging on the ice and some of us were able to step foot onto an iceberg.
This afternoon we landed at Yalour Island to observe our first Adélie colony. We also observed the circle of life during an encounter with a skua and baby penguin.
This evening was more krill fishing with the Nansen net followed by a sing-along with the onboard guitar.
