Zodiac Cruising around the South Orkney Islands

Zodiac Cruising around the South Orkney Islands

Region: Antarctica

Destinations: South Orkney Islands

Cruising along the icebergs

​On many of the South Orkney Islands it is very difficult to make landfall due to the lack of sheltered bays, an inaccessible coastline and the often very rough seas. Zodiac cruising therefore offers a good alternative for exploring some of the islands. Cruising along blue icebergs and along the rugged coast with thousands of penguins is a great way to discover the beauty of these islands.
