Enter­pri­se Island – 25 Janu­ary 2018

It had been quite a ride down south in Brans­field and Ger­la­che Straits yes­ter­day. Start­ing with calm waters and wha­les, we got wind and waves later in the day.

It was beau­tiful to wake up in peace and silence. Litt­le splas­hes of water out­side rather than big, hard waves. Ice­bergs and the end­less, wild coast­li­ne of Ant­ar­c­ti­ca!

We went along­side the wreck of an old wha­ling ship at Enter­pri­se Island. A love­ly litt­le bay, sur­roun­ded by ice walls. Soon we were on our way with the ding­hys, making a landing on a tiny litt­le island with old wha­ling boats, see­ing seals, Blue-eyed shags and all sorts of of ice in various shapes and sizes. The­re was also a bit of wind and waves, not too much but enough to make it a rather cold expe­ri­ence con­side­ring we were out for a good three hours. We enjoy­ed a very cosy evening on board, loo­king for­ward to a calm night wit­hout anchor wat­ches.
