We’ve returned for another season of ice and sun in Antarctica, working aboard Quark Expedition’s Ocean Diamond. More than a month has flown by already. It has been pretty action packed, with zodiac cruising, camping, kayaking, climbing & skiing and the newest adventure option – stand up paddle boarding (SUPing). It’s been great to see the first Antarctic SUPers on the water, with their tall silhouettes gliding around bergs. Some of the kayak guides are convinced that it’s really just a lot of standing around (!), but whether you sit or stand, it’s magic to travel through the landscape here self-propelled, with penguins and whales passing by. Antarctica yoga classes seem to be getting more popular all the time too – and while practicing yoga isn’t typically something to brag about, it’s not everyone can say that they tried their first downward dog aboard a ship in the infamously rough Drake Passage. Our next voyage is a 23 day trip to the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica. It’s always a season highlight for us, so I’m sure we’ll have more photos for you soon. In the meantime, here are some icy pics of the season thus far.
