Bone Bay

Wednesday 26 January 2022 Afternoon

63 degrees 38.70 minutes South 59 degrees 3.45 minutes West

This afternoon the ship anchored in an area of the Antarctic Peninsula called Bone Bay. It was named after Thomas M. Bone, a midshipman on the brig Williams used in exploring the South shetland Islands and Bransfield Strait in 1820.

The ship sent out sounding zodiacs to determine the bay depth and the Captain informed us we were the first cruise ship to stop at this location. We would be going on an expedition zodiac cruise to explore the bay and we did not know what we would find. It was an amazing adventure! We saw leopard seals, volcanic geologic formations, penguins crystal blue water and icebergs.
