Our morning trip was to Half-Moon Island, a small island named for its shape, with a lot of gentoo penguins, one macaroni penguin, and an Argentinian research station.


After that it was off to Deception Island, an amazing place as we sail inside an active volcano and then wander around the sides of the remaining crater. And swim. It was very cold, and I apologise for my unflattering photos. Look at the girls instead.


Had a few comments about this already. The water was definitely freezing cold except when it was very shallow, where it was quite hot. The island is an active volcano!
