Antarctic Adventures - Cuverville & Booth Islands

Cuverville and Booth Islands, just along the Antarctic Peninsula, were both spectacular. Spectacular ice, sunset, and penguin chick cuteness.

Day 17:
Today truly feels Antarctic
Gentoos stealing stones and feeding chicks
Leopard seals afloat
On ice near our boat
Icebergs at midnight - all over too quick

Line of porpoising penguins in the foreground of a spectacular scene

Porpoising Gentoos near calving glacier front

Penguin highway

Gentoo chicks eating barfed up krill


Gorgeous iceberg

Leopard seal

 Metamorphosed, sheared & folded iceberg!

Rather phenomenal sunset

I couldn't resist!
