Summer will be progressing on the Antarctic Peninsula the cold of winter has given away to the peak of the season. We will rely on the advanced season to reduce the possibility of ice blocking our way south. Meanwhile the penguin chicks are growing rapidly and demanding lots of food so the colonies will be buzzing with activity and whales will be spotted more frequently as they spend their summer foraging in the productive bays and channels. It’s a great time to be visiting Antarctica and we have the added bonus of extending our trip right past the Antarctic Circle.
