Weddell Sea

The Weddell Sea, on the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula, has a colder climate and more sea ice, making for more difficult navigation and unpredictable landings. But the sight of vast tabular glaciers (perhaps up to a mile in length) coming out of Antarctic Sound is truly breathtaking.  Weddell and crabeater seals, humpback whales, killer and minke whales and  adelie penguins abound.
