A close encounter with penguins

A close encounter with penguins | GulfNews.com.

Another gorgeous day in Antarctica, starting with a two-hour snowshoe hike at Damoy Point. Stunning vistas included the seven sisters mountain range, Mount William and Mount France. The hike ended with some very close encounters with the penguins.

Then on to a jam packed afternoon starting with zodiac cruises , visits to Douglas Point and finally on to  Port Lockroy – Antarctica’s only post office.

Tonight we will be sleeping on the ice. We will be boarding zodiacs at 8.30pm to head out to our camp site. No tents for this crew as the team continue to challenge themselves in the Polar conditions. It will prove to be an extraordinary experience
