4-Deception-Island
Classic Antarctica

Day 5 – December 13, 2011

Another very different face of Antarctica greeted us when we awoke this morning. Yesterday’s blue sky was now obscured by thick low clouds, and the wind had churned up the sea to a froth. When we arrived off of Halfmoon Island, Expedition Leader Larry Hobbs and Assistant Expedition Leader Marco Favero took a zodiac [...]

Classic Antarctica

Day 4 – December 12, 2011
