45-50 Humpback whales surrounding us for about 2 hours! The Drake Shake with 84 knot wind gusts! Lemaire Channel with brash ice and growlers. Camping in Paradise. Sailing into Deception Island (Neptune's Bellows) at 5 am in broad daylight. Seeing 3 types of seals and 3 types of adorable penguins. Adventureous, friendly, inquisitive people-and staff.

Our ship encountered a huge group of feeding humpback whales. We were surrounded by them for approx. 1.5 hours as we watched them feed, play, breech, dive... it was an enchanting experience. I never thought I would be so up close to these beautiful creatures.

Camping on the Antarctic land was the most amazing and serene experience we ever had or will have in future. It was the best to dig your own "grave", sleep under the stars, hearing avalanche and having penguins and seals lying around.. Very very surreal and most memorable experience on this trip.

Crossing the Drake passage, lectures on the wild life found in the area and then actually getting to see the animals. Visiting Deception Island, setting foot on the continent for the very first time. I enjoyed my time on the Hondius, amazing staff, Karolina, & DJ, and fellow ship mates.
