Had a great landing with walk amongst Chin Straps and Weddell Seals. Love the Weddells, faves so far.
Afternoon landing at Whaler's Bay, Deception Island, which is a active volcano caldera. Two of the expedition team dug a couple of wallows in the black sand of the shoreline for the more adventurous amongst us to take a dip in the geothermally heated water. Needless to say, neither of us braved the icy dip followed by the warm wallow followed by the icy dressing.
