Antarctica cruise to Orne Island among huge icebergs
March 7th, 2005
Orne Island is a small island just off the Antarctic Peninsula and is surrounded by nice blue icebergs, where is possible to have a safe cruise around them aboard the zodiacs. In Orne Island, I meet the Chinstrap penguins for the first time during this Antarctica cruise, and I continue to spot more leopard seals.
The cruise ship is anchroed in this beautiful channel just off the Antarctica Peninsula. An exciting zodiac cruise with a landing on Orne island awaits us.
During the zodiac cruise, we spot a leopard seal resting on an ice floe.
An incredible, colorful iceberg just off Orne Island.

Here, I encounter for the first time during this cruise to Antarctica, a Chinstrap penguin.
Of course, in Orne Island there are also Gentoo penguins and Fur seals.
After the excursion to Orne Island, the cruise to Antarctica continues under a sunset in the clear and crystalline air of the white continent.
