On this day, the captain of Le Boréal decided to sail farther south than any Ponant company ship had ever been. This brought us to the edge of the pack ice. Explorers such as Shackleton sailed into the pack ice and ended up with their ships iced in for the winter. This led to the famous “Endurance” expedition of Shackleton.
In the ice we were able to spot a tall penguin standing next to a short penguin. This was an Emperor with an Adelie but, unfortunately it was too far away for photography.
