Antarctica, Smooth As Glass

 

Back on board the Ioffe, it is as if we are sliding across a piece of glass as we sail to our next destination. The surrounding scenery beautifully reflects off the water surface as small pieces of melting icebergs float by.

 

Smooth As Glass We are headed southeast and occasionally you can hear pieces of ice being crushed beneath the hull of the Ioffe.

 

 

 

Like the on board Zodiacs, the ship is specifically designed for operations in the polar regions. The Ioffe can easily navigate through the areas of floating ice.

The calmness of the seas is unbelievable and except for the humming of the Ioffe this offers a chance for a tranquil reflection of the beauty here.
