Today's morning landing was at Cuverville Island. Here we enjoyed the antics of Gentoo penguins.

In the afternoon, we landed at Port Lockroy, a UK scientific and historic station. Here we could get our passports stamped and visit a small museum and gift shop. Perhaps the most interesting event was seeing two of Port Lockroy's residents come aboard Explorer to take a shower.
