Cuverville Island, Antarctica

January 2005

Back to main Antarctica gallery


Cuverville Island proved to be one of the highlights of the trip. First of all we had the incredible good fortune to watch a humpback whale roll and play in the ice for nearly 45 minutes. Then, just as the whale dived for the last time, we noticed that the departing clouds had unveiled a landscape brilliant in its sunlighted beauty. Three incredible hours of watching gentoo penguis on land and the majesty and mystery of icebergs followed.

For me, this is what living is all about.

Just returned from a 12/2019 Antarctic cruise via the Silver Cloud. Was very fortunate to spend 3 hours sea kayaking around Cuverville Island in sunshine and little wind. One of my most perfect days on Planet Earth! :)
