GPS Track – From King George to Elephant Island, Antarctica

February 18th, 2010 at 10:01 pm (AST) by Jake Richter

We arrived this morning at Elephant Island in the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica around 7:15am (which coincided with when we work up). We spent the late morning on a Zodiac tour and doing a landing at Cape Lookout on the southwestern part of the island, where we encountered our first Macaroni penguins and elephant seals (after which the island is named).

In the afternoon we visited Point Wild on the northeastern part of the island (see previous post for some photos).

Tomorrow we’re due to make landfall in the South Orkney Islands.

The GPS track for the last day or so can be found below:
