Antarctic season February - April 2009
Antarctic season 2008/2009 – The following pages tell the stories of my voyages to “The Ice” in early 2009. Besides from just enjoying, you will also get a realistic impression of what to expect in case you consider a voyage. All voyages were carried out with the M/V Grigoriy Mikheev, a Russian vessel which has capacity for 46 passengers.

King Penguins in South Georgia …
… and a Gentoo Penguin in the South Shetlands, displaying a slightly less royal behaviour
Neither penguins will last forever under Antarctic conditions …
… nor stones.
