On our last day of fun in Antarctica we first went to Spert Island. Information on the ship's daily program said, "Spert Island is located off the west coast of Trinity Island in the Palmer Archipelago. The area was known to nineteenth century sealers and was chartered by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition in 1902. It is known for its canyon like waterways and large collections of grounded icebergs."
The water was quite rough, but the sun was shining and the rocky islands were nothing like anything we'd yet seen here. We cruised via zodiac through rocky arches and around icebergs.

Particulars: This expedition was with Quark Expeditions. I highly recommend them and look forward to another adventure with Quark somewhere soon.
