Drake Passage, Barrientos, Halfmoon, and Deception Islands

The trip starts at the Southern tip of South America, in Ushuaia, Argentina, the Southernmost city in the world. From there, head East in the Beagle Channel, then take 2 days to cross the Drake Passage heading South. We are lucky on the way down, wavew are only 10 to 20 foot high. Then on the evening of our third day we go ashore in zodiacs to Barrientos Island, in the Aitcho Island group, within the larger South Shetland Islands. Then the next day we land at Halfmoon Island and to Deception Island where the ship sails inside what is actually still an active volcano (last erupted in 1969). I kayaked inside Whalers Cove inside Deception Island, so did not get many photos there.
