Dwarfed by the Ross Ice Shelf – Exploring Cape Byrd

Our In the Wake of Scott & Shackleton adventure continued as we sailed alongside the Ross Ice Shelf. Surrounded by the towering ice, we explored some of the kilometre-long cracks that had opened before heading ashore at Cape Byrd. Landing on the beach in frigid water and surrounded by small icebergs, we were greeted by happy Adélie Penguins and totally ignored by lounging Weddell Seals.

The view from the Antarctic New Zealand research hut over the bay was stunning. After an eventful day, Heritage Adventurer cruised through calm waters south past Cape Royds and anchored close to Cape Evans.
