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.
