We arrived at Deception Island after three days of navigation. The luckiest could watch orcas and whales and many birds (Sooty albatross, fulmars, petrels course, terns, giant petrels …).

Deception Island is a lagoon-shaped horseshoe, nestled in the crater of a volcano. We are protected from wind and waves which allow some of us to relax ( especially alpinists who is sensitive to seasickness )…
We will use the full day to take a walk on the island and taste our equipment. The Ice- Weather conditions in Port Lockroy are good where the main objective of the alpinists is the traverse of 7 sisters, and we think we can leave from tomorrow. ”
