At the coast, you’ll marvel at the beauty of the rugged cliffs, turquoise waters and huge swell. You’ll get to go to a pristine remote beach where there will be nothing between you and Antarctica besides the vast Southern Ocean. Eastern Osprey’s are a common sight out here and in winter you might be lucky to see a Southern Right Whale.
