Which birds can be found in antarctica?
Although many journeys to Antarctica focus on photographing the landscapes and penguins when you actually arrive on the Antarctic Peninsula, we want to ensure you make the most of any and all photographic opportunities available to you. Crossing the Drake Passage is an unavoidable part of any journey from Ushuaia to Antarctica, but this doesn't mean that it has to be two days of sitting in your cabin waiting for the excitement to begin. Throughout the crossing there will be whales and birds aplenty so get your cameras out and start honing your photography skills now. A number of Antarctic birds love to follow in the wakes of ships as their prey is displaced due to the movement of the ship which therefore makes them easier to hunt. Stand out on the deck of the ship to look out for albatross, shags, gullls and terns en route and you might even get your first photo to be proud of before you even arrive in the seventh continent.
