Our journey continued south along the Antarctic Peninsula, and we entered into the Lemaire Channel.
The Lemaire is a dramatic landscape, and it’s among the most beautiful parts of the Antarctic Peninsula. It’s a seven mile long passage that at its narrowest is only a half mile wide. The channel can be full of icebergs and sea ice, making navigation difficult. It has towering peaks on either side, topping 2,000 ft in height on either side of the channel. The deep waters of the channel hold seals, penguin, and whales.
