Kayaking in Antarctica
There are worse places to be than gliding silently at water level amongst the icebergs, seals, and penguins of Antarctica.<br/><br/>Exploring narrow and shallow passages that not even the zodiacs can pass through. Weaving through the brash ice. Looking down through the crystal-clear water. Drifting quietly by a leopard seal lounging on a small iceberg. Craning your neck as precarious glacier cliffs tower above. Watching the playful penguins dart underneath the kayaks. Bracing yourself for a possible dunking as massive, curious elephant seals come up to nibble on the rudder.<br/><br/>And if the breeze is in just the right direction and the ice carved just so, you might just be able to hear the icebergs sing.
