Neko Harbor is a small bay in the larger inlet of Andvord Bay on the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. The harbor is surrounded by giant glaciers that are heavily crevassed and regularly calve. There is a large colony of Gentoo penguins here with many fluffy chicks. Not only are the chicks great fun to watch especially when they chase their parents for food, the scenery from the top of the hill is breathtaking. This is exactly how I imagined the white continent of Antarctica in my mind.
From Neko Harbor, we set sail towards Lemaire Channel and Booth Island. Stay tuned!
