Antarctic Kayak Expedition Blog – On December 2008, we will travel aboard the Antarctic Dream Cruise Ship to the Antarctic Peninsula to make a 550 nautical miles / 1018 km self-supported kayak journey visiting the Palmer Archipelago and the Danco Coast, both among the places with highest wildlife density in the white continent. In first month … [we] will circumnavigate the Anvers and Brabant Islands, first seen in February 1820 by the United States citizen Nathaniel Palmer, on the voyage where he discovered Antarctica. During this first 300 nautical miles stage, we will do a meticulous survey of the North coast of the Anvers Island, barely explored due to its countless rocks, small islands and shallow waters exposed to the open sea, which makes it a dangerous place to incursion in larger vessels. We will also explore the cliffy nooks of Brabant Island, and we will visit the bases, Lockroy, England; Palmer, U.S.A; and Islas Melchior, Argentina.
