Antarctic Peninsula- NE
Antarctic Sound & Weddell Sea
Information about Antarctic Peninsula- NE
A spectacular destination, the Antarctic Sound is the gateway to the Weddell Sea and is always home to many beautiful tabular icebergs.
This 30-mile stretch of water at the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula offers remarkable vistas as you sail past Joinville Island and the sound is a good location too observe Adelie Penguins.
Massive tabular icebergs drift through from the Weddell Sea and get stuck on shallower banks. With the spectacular tubular bergs and stunning glaciated mountains, the Antarctic Sound is a photographer's delight, often nicknamed 'iceberg alley', and offers some of the most breathtaking vistas in the Peninsula.
