Berg Cruising

To our excitement, after a hard day of sampling at Mitchell Peninsula, we found ourselves in a flurry of activity and managed to snag a spot on a boating trip amongst the bergs at Casey - blessed the weather.

Boating in Antarctica is a very part-time activity.  Within that short summer window, most days are unsuitable because of wind: anything stronger than 15 knots makes it cold and raises waves, and the whole thing gets uncomfortable and dangerous.
