Cousin Sydney either (i) is ejected from the raft from the force of the rapids or (ii) fakes an ejection in order to try and get away from her crazy cousins – you watch it and be the judge.

Skua bird attaching Gentoo penguin in Antarctica
Tanner captured this video while we were exploring penguin colonies on Petermann Island in Antarctica. You can hear one guy in particular standing next to us who was really horrified that the Skua may end up killing the Gentoo penguin chick. Luckily for the penguin and us watching, the Skua was scared away eventually by an adult penguin. The Skua chicks may have gone hungry that day. Here is a link to the video on YouTube.

We were rewarded with a beautiful, sunny day and some pretty amazing calving – this one (on YouTube) being the best we have ever experienced.
