South Shetland Islands 
On our second day in the Shetland Islands we landed at Bailey Head on Deception Island. First to greet us was a group of Fur Seals.

The natural beauty of the island coupled with the sheer number of adorable penguins made this landing on of my favorite moments of the trip.

The penguins would enter and leave the water in awkward, carefree, mesmerizing groups.

Landing and leaving this beach was a bit tricky, the surf was high and we only had a few seconds to load up before the next wave hit. As my boat was leaving, the crew members that were helping us vacate were blindsided by a big wave and went under - so cold!!!
