Hard to pick just one moment --- the colours in icebergs, the complete lack of fear of penguins (they have to be the only animal on the planet that doesn't run and hide from humans), the active volcano, the whales and their incredible curiosity and playfulness, the moment I set foot on Antarctica --- it was one memorable moment after another.

I can't say which was my most memorable because every minute of the tour was memorable! 1.) Landing on the continent with the flag 2.) Polar circle crossing baptismal ceremony 3.) Polar plunge 4.) Spending time with fellow guests, staffs, and crew of Ocean Nova

Everything was amazing. The whales, seals and penguins are magnificent and cute at the same time. The lectures bring you new knowledge and understanding. The expedition teams are superb! And the service on board and at Punta Arenas also super nice.

Looking out the windows of Antartica and seeing this vast wilderness I had only experienced through magazine pictures, documentaries or books. To see the size, color and the real life of Antartica with my own eyes...to think of life day to day of penguins, whales breaching, and the breathtaking moment a glacier calves and you see it...it moves your soul.
