Polar PioneerTabular icebergs stream out of Antarctic Sound, marking our entrance to the Weddell Sea, where powerful tides and big ice signal an adventurous voyage. Pack ice stretches to the horizon, reflecting golden sun. Upwellings of cold, nutrient-rich water attract diverse wildlife. Ice-free islands host penguin colonies 200,000 strong. We hope to explore Prince Gustav Channel, fossil-rich Seymour Island and Otto Nordenskjold’s historic hut on Snow Hill Island. In contrast to the Weddell Sea’s wild isolation, spellbinding scenery captivates us as we sail down the Antarctic Peninsula’s west coast. Towering, glaciated peaks rise from a maze of islands and waterways, populated with overwhelming numbers of seals, penguins, whales and seabirds.
