A short time after lunch we are boarding zodiacs for our afternoon outing. Groups of us will take turns visiting Port Lockroy and nearby Jougla Point on Goudier Island.
I spend the start of my time there with one of the expedition leaders, Damien, who has a wealth of information about the area.
Here there are several colonies of gentoo penguins, blue eyed shags and kelp gulls. They are busy with spring time activities which become very interesting to watch.
At one time, this area had an active whaling industry at Jougla Point.
