Iceberg Alley & Port Charcot

Today, we went through Iceberg Alley – what a treat! These giant structures floating effortlessly in the water… magnificent. Wildlife were also abundant today, with the sighting of leopard seals, crabeater seals, gentoo penguins, minke whales, and all sorts of birds. It was truly a pleasure to be allowed to experience this habitat as it is.

Couldn’t decide on just a few photos, so here’s nine more of some of my favorite shots from the excursion.

Colored like a penguin. Perched on a rock like a penguin. Not a penguin.
