This trip was the furthest south I’ve ever gotten on a boat to the Antarctic mainland. It was tantalizing close, but we didn’t quite make it there. Hurricane force winds compacted the ice pack and nearly stranded our Ukrainian expedition ship. The captain was able to extricate the ship before it got stuck. This far south we were able to see the massive tabular icebergs and along the Antarctic Peninsula we encountered colonies of Adelie and Gentoo penguins. Enjoy the journey!
