Antarctica is a wonderful place to behold, and maybe the best way to see it is at sea level, in a kayak.

We had the opportunity to do just that as our cruise ship stopped at various islands around Antarctica and on the frozen continent itself. Every day down there we were able to go on shore , or sightsee from little zodiacs, or climb into a kayak and paddle around by ourselves.

As I said, maybe kayaking was the very best.
