Q: Who discovered the Ross Sea?

Captain James Clark Ross commanded the first two ships (HMS Erebus and HMS Terror) to enter the frigid waters of the Ross Sea. Though he did not succeed in his mission to reach the magnetic South Pole during this 1839 - 1843 expedition, he did chart the Ross Sea and discover the Ross Ice Shelf. You can see both of these amazing Antarctic attractions on our Ross Sea cruises, which include the use of helicopters.
