We did not manage to reach Paulet island. This was because of packed ice conditions in Weddle sea. So we had to turn back again through Antarctica sound . We passed through huge tabular icebergs floating around in that area. It was almost size of a huge football stadium. It was bit of a wasteful day and we did not do any landing today.

Today morning our first stop is to visit whalers bay in deception island. I woke up early in morning to watch the ship passing through a narrow gap to enter deception island. The landscape here is very different compare to all other places in Antarctica. Here active volcanic activity exists . The island stays right above a magma chambers.
