We leave anchorage at 6am and go towards Point Wild, where Shackleton’s group of 22 men camped until being rescued four months later.
We arrive at what is left of their ‘beach’ at 10am and go on shore with the zodiac. It is very windy and cold. It is about –17ºC with the wind.
A few chinstrap penguins are onshore, along with a couple of fur seals. One of the fur seals is bleeding from the head: fight or accident?
