‪We just couldn't get enough on how beautiful and stunning the landscapes were all around. The wildlife featured thousands of penguins, and a few seals. Just a magical experience!‬

‪The crew aboard the Le Boreal prepared us for the visit to Deception Island; the precautions, the emergency protocol and briefed us on what to expect. Many aboard decided not to brave the elements swimming in the Deception Island Caldera.

I'm glad we did. It was an incredible experience!! On disembarking the zodiacs, we assembled on a slope of black sandy beach. We threw off our thermal clothing, boots and parka - running into the steaming water, while the freezing air round us nipped at our hands and faces. Shrieks surrounded us as the shock of hot and cold assaulted us. The sandy bottom was rough but the water churned as everyone joined the scramble to swim, explore and have pictures taken with shipmates.The experience was surreal. Surrounded by black sandy beaches, ice and snow, jagged snow covered cliff we were swimming in mildly warm water of a caldera in Antarctica.

Emerging from the water we quickly felt the icy fingers of sub zero weather attack our bodies, and we rushed to dry off and dress haphazardly in thermal gear. Pausing only to take commemorative photographs of this once in a lifetime event. We were quickly taken back to the ship in zodiacs, where hot beverages awaited us with a generous splash of brandy. Later in the day, if you wanted another, more plebeian experience, walking tours of the island were available.

The ship gifted us certificate as a testament to our bravery, fool hardiness or sheer lust for an incredible experience!! Swimming in the most exclusive and remote "pool" on the planet!‬

‪My final land journey on my Antarctica expedition was hiking a trail on Mount Achala. The late afternoon on a beautiful February 2020 day provided the perfect background for all of the views from Mount Achala. The trail is challenging at points, but quite doable for travelers of all ages! From the vantage points along the trail, I was even more impressed by the natural formation that is Deception Island. Note that the initial walk up to the trail can be a bit of a haul, but patience and walking sticks can make this another accomplishment on a 7th Continent journey.

I was able to see some of my fellow shipmates from the MS Midnatsol hike Mount Achala in the early afternoon; the view was spectacular and only whet my appetite for my late afternoon visit to Mount Achala. It lived up to my every expectation and was the perfect way to start the close of my journey to the White Continent.‬

‪This Review is about Deception Island. Our expedition ship stopped in the Neptune's Bellows area of Deception Island. This was a fitting last stop on an amazing adventure to Antarctica and sub-Antarctic Islands. Like everywhere we went on the the continent, Deception Island has seals, penguins and amazing birds. A once in a lifetime experience.‬

‪In one of my last days during a trip to Antarctica I visited Deception Island and this place. It differs a lot from the rest of the Antarctic Peninsula and resembles Iceland more than an island in the Antarctic Peninsula due to active vulcano. The abandoned buildings give it a kind of urban exploration feeling while nature continues to be impressive with the gorgeous cliffs and spectacular view over the caldera and the island.‬

‪Nach der Ankunft öffnete sich der Himmel und die Sonne trat hervor. Daher sind wir froh auch die Wanderung gemacht zu haben
Der Hügel ist nur 200 Meter hoch , der Blick inkl der brodelnden Löcher ist schon top‬

‪Deception Island is een nog actieve vulkaan en dat te midden van ijs en sneeuw op Antarctica. Fantastisch en ongezien.
We bezochten Whalers Bay, waar zich het voormalige walvisstation bevindt. Hier kan je rondwandelen tussen de restanten van de vroegere walvisvangstindustrie. Op het strand wandel je tussen de pinguïns en zeehonden. Via het strand kan je naar Neptune's window stappen, een mooi maar winderig uitkijkpunt over de Antarctische oceaan.
Even verduidelijken. Mount Achala ligt op Deception Island maar NIET aan Whalers Bay.‬

‪Everywhere you visit in Antarctica is amazing. Take your time, soak it in, use your eyes for the most long lasting images! Actual visit was January 2018.‬

‪You arrive on the Island via Neptune's Bellows which is a submerged portion of the rim of the still active volcano that formed the island. In landing at Telefon Bay you can hike to the rim of the crater to view the last volcanic activity - eruptions that occurred in 1966 and 1969. It is unlike the rest of the Antarctic Peninsula in that there is black sand to contrast with the white snow and the view from the rim is otherworldly.‬

‪Deception Island is a flooded caldera and being active up to present. Many cruisemates in the expedition cruise ship want to try swimming in the bay there during the landing period. You can find steam covering part of the black volcanic sandy beach with a few penquins and seals witnessing the courageous guys hopping in and out of the "warm" water which should just be above freezing point.‬
