It’s the last day on the Peninsula for my Antarctic season and the weather was perfect for the start of 2023
Fantastic snow conditions giving us secure short roping conditions to the summit of Spigot Peak allowed us to have a great day out with good laughs and chats along the way.
As a bonus I got to take my friend Toni to the summit and back down safely - Toni has watched us climb in Antarctica for quite a few years now - but always from the Bridge. Was a privilege to get him up something he’s always watched us do 👍
It’s such a privilege to be back down on the Antarctic Peninsula with an amazing and enthusiastic team! From the Bridge to the Engine Room and all the departments in between, we all work hard at delivering a fantastic experience to our passengers.
On way back down to the end of the world ( Fin del Mundo ) to #Ushuaia to meet up with MV Hondius from @oceanwideexp
It’s been a few years of covid and fortress NZ - super excited to get back out on a few peaks, driving zodiacs, crossing the Drake and generally enjoying ship life and the amazing experience that is The Antarctic Peninsula.
It’s been a busy transition into summer in New Zealand. A trip to Mt Aspiring recently with @shaneboyd__bluff_mountaineer saw us almost reaching the summit but needing to turn back due to increasing winds and very firm ice. The summits always there for another nudge but we always bring you home. Grand adventure in the NZ alps
