Lemaire Channel, Peterman Island, and the Penola Strait

Saturday, November 21.
Perfect Day- Cold Antarctic weather with a clear sun. Zodiacs left the ship early to film the Explorer sailing through the LeMaire Channel.
This was the most narrow and scenic channel of our voyage. Seven miles long and one mile wide with spectacular peaks and blue icebergs  on each side. The only sounds that could be heard as we glided through this winter wonderland was the sound of the camera shutters. We then visited Petermann Island and spent the rest of the day greeting and meeting Adelie and Gentoo penguins.  We had time for some kayaking around the icebergs before pulling up anchor and heading for Port Lockroy.
