At Cuverville island we again see a large colony of gentoo penguins. And, as elsewhere, south polar skuas attempting to grab penguin chicks. But the rookeries are well guarded, and a penguin will not hesitate to frighten off an attacking skua. Skuas also eat what is left on carcasses of dead penguins. Wilhelmina bay is known for spotting whales, usually minke, but we see more of the much larger humpbacks, with differently coloured tailfin undersides. The last landing is at whalers bay, on Deception island, the caldera of an active volcano. The remains of storage tanks and boilers bear witness to a once thriving whaling industry. Now there is quite a large group of fur seals. The return crossing of the Drake Passage is less easy. It's a huricane all the way.
