Troy Glennon’s Go South Adventures – Antarctica – Part 11 – Search for Whales

Friday, August 13th, 2010

This was our last day in the Antarctic Peninsula, our last day in a surreal dream world of sculpted ice and amazing creatures. In the morning we sail with the Plancius through the beautiful Neumayer Channel and make one last zodiac cruise between the Melchior islands, before we head back into the Drake passage. We have heard that Humpback whales have been sighted.

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Antarctic Camping with the Mv Plancius is indeed a one-of-a-kind opportunity, not to be missed by those looking to forgo a nights comfort on the ship for unique experience. What started out as Antarctic camping became another great adventure. Step 1 – find a flat spot, Step 2 – keep looking for a flat spot (the first one you found was an ice sink hole).

Antarctica has a special designation as a place for “Peace and Science”. So far, peace is one of Antarctica’s most impressive feats and Antarctic science has provided important research data regarding global climate conditions that affects us all. And thanks to the extra hard work of Ukrainian researchers, Antarctic vodka is a drink to be savored…much like place itself.

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Wow, its so calm…and quiet. Once again the Antarctic exceeds my expectations of freezing white and bitter cold. I have never been more enchanted by the many colors of gray (sky, rocks, water, whales). After a comprehensive briefing on kayak safety, most of us beginners, we were excited and a little nervous to brave these chilly waters. For us kayakers, Dorian Bay did not disappoint…
