In the fall of 2023 I was part of a Quark expedition that took us from King George Island to Deception Island, through Active Sound, Yankee Harbor, Neptune's Bellows and Window, Paradise Harbor, Whaler's Bay, Elephant Point, Cierva Cove, Cuverville Island, Portal Point, and Mikkelsen Harbour.

As the senior staff reminded us prior to the day we were to head out on the flight, conditions on the Island could restrict our ability to land (and, after the trip, to return). The gravel landing strip is shared by Spain and Russia and is rustic. Brace yourself when landing on the strip. Our initial departure time - 7 a.m. - was scrubbed in favor of an afternoon departure to the Island. This meant we commenced the World Explorer part of the trip later than expected. This underscores the point that Fly the Drake is not a cruise - it's an expedition. Apart from targeting departure and arrival dates, the captain and crew did not provide an itinerary in advance of our landing on the Island. Instead, we had nightly briefings that reported where we were and where we hoped to travel the following day. This gave our well-traveled crew the chance to get the most out of our time in the waters off Antarctica.

Each day during these briefings our crew members, the naturalists, social scientists, and navigators, would explain what wildlife we might see. They did not disappoint. We saw Gentoo, Adelie, and Chinstrap penguins, petrels and cormorants, skuas and terns; and we saw fin and humpback whales, fur, leopard and Weddell seals, and witnessed the successful hunting of penguins by orcas. While much of this might have been lost on me, our crew brought these sightings to our attention in time for us to share in the experience.

Where conditions permitted it, the crew would have us board Zodiacs (rubber pontoon motorboats) and either bring us to land or experience the land mass from the Zodiacs. Where weather obscured our view, the captain and crew would use the time to position the World Explorer to prepare for sightings at locations where the weather was more accommodating.

Deception Island is a small island in the Bransfield Strait, 620 miles / 1,000km south of Ushuaia, Argentina. It is close to Antarctic Peninsula but is in South Shetland Islands.

This island is the caldera of an active volcano. Waking up to a rather overcast skies, I went to the bow and took some videos. As we sail into Whalers Bay, the scenery is even more beautiful and tranquil. It did perk me up - for more than two weeks on the ship, I was a little weary.

I would love to go kayaking one more time but it was canceled due to the weather. By 10:20am, the wind was picking up, that forced us to return to the ship earlier than planed.

I visited Deception Island during an Expedition Cruise to Antarctica. The volcano is Quote massive and the caldera forms On my way of the safest harbours near the Antarctic Peninsula. I did a hike to the hill near the former whaling station and took a bath in the cold water.

Deception Island has everything. Amazing rock formations, geothermal activity, remnants of building and storage tanks, and plenty of avian wildlife. It is pretty hard to get their on your own, so hopefully your expedition cruise stops there.

Whalers Bay and Neptunes Bellows we saw going in were awesome. What was even crazier was how enormous this caldera is. It took us hours to get all the inside

Isla Decepción (Isla del engaño)- Shetland del Sur
Así bautizó Nathan Palmer a esta isla que no es una isla sino un volcán con una caldera inundada en su interior.
Navegantes, piratas y balleneros han intentado conquistar esta isla pero ella se ha ocupado de expulsarlos con la furia de su volcán.
La isla es una medialuna casi cerrada. La parte central donde entramos navegando es ni más ni menos que el crater de un volcán.
Desembarcamos en Whaler’s Bay, la vieja estación ballenera, los viejos edificios destruidos y los tanques oxidados dejan los vestigios de lo que fue en un tiempo. Afortunadamente el día era muy soleado lo que es un milagro ya que las nubes suelen estancarse allí y le quitó el clima desolador y dramático que caracteriza allugar.
La Base argentina Decepción y su compañera española G. de Castilla en Telefon Bay se encuentran allí haciendo estudios sismológráficos y científicos.
La colonia de chinstraps más grande de la Antártida se encuentra allí aunque no es posible verla fácilmente.

To paraphrase the old saying, all good things must come to an end. However, the last landing my wife and I made on our Antarctica expedition was full of adventure. This horseshoe shaped “island” is on the site of an active volcano. The island was formed as the result of volcanic eruptions that emptied magma and eventually formed Deception Island. During my exploration, I learned that the island was once the home of a whaling station and subsequently also the home of scientific stations. Unfortunately, volcanic eruptions seriously damaged scientific stations in 1967 and 1969. Skeletal remnants of a scientific station remain. There are also large storage bins and barrels that remain from the old whaling station.

This exploration was unique to our Antarctica journey based on the nature of the island. Heat still emanates from the black sand and the mist spreads along the water edge. This makes Deception Island a great place to take a dip when visiting Antarctica!

Deception Island is also home to the still waters of Telefon Bay as well as Mount Achala which offered a nice hiking trail with magnificent views. A lone chinstrap penguin stopped to check us out as we were taking the last few steps to our final zodiac ride! Every visitor to Antarctica must include an exploration of Deception Island as part of their Antarctica journey.

It was our fourth and final day in Antarctica and we had made it to Deception Island in time for sunset. This island is still an active volcano, with its center a caldera that has filled with sea water. The ruins from a whaling station, abandoned years ago still remain, although we did not see it. The sunset here was amazing but it was very cold and windy. Of the 1,200+ people on our cruise ship, only 21 of us were adventurous (stupid) enough to watch the sunset from the open deck. According to our captain, the wind was gusting to 65 knots (75 mph).

Antarctica is amazing! We started the first day of 2020 with sailing into the caldera of Deception Island. We landed in Telefon Bay, and had the possibility of taking a long circular hike to a mountain top with a great view of the caldera. We were satisfied just to go about 1/2 way up. Even though I am not adventuresome, I really want to take a dip in the Antarctica waters instead. It was very cold to say the least, and hit you about 30 seconds into the water, but it definitely was a once in a lifetime experience! It was recommended to do this in Telefon Bay as there is relief from the winds that can prevail. There is a place to go "swimming" called Pendulum Cave across the harbor that is geothermally heated but that was not the area where we landed. .We also did a zodiac tour for a geology lesson. It is still considered an active volcano. Last eruption was in 1970.

The day we visited it was overcast and somewhat darkish. It gave the entire island an eerie feeling. I think that added to the charm of the visit. Would love to do it again!
