Elephant Island

Unfortunately, we could not go ashore at Elephant Island due to a large Leopard Seal that was napping in our landing spot.  As they can be a bit testy and have large teeth, we instead got a great tour of the island all and the nesting Chinstrap and Gentoo Penguins.  They were amazing in how they jumped in and out of the water.  We also got a great look at a Macaroni Penguin that seemed a bit out of place.
