much survives in the cold, harsh climate of Antarctica. But,
those that do are well adapted. Life here consists of birds,
marine mammals, fish, and some hardy plantlife. We saw seals
on several occasions, both on land and sea. On our last day,
we went cruising in zodiacs among a pod of humpback whales.
We got an amazing, up close performance, watching them feed
and surface only yards from our tiny boats.
