Lemaire Channel and Vernadsky Station
This morning we will sail through the Lemaire Channel which is a strait off Antarctica. It’s also nicknamed “Kodak Gap” by some and is one of the top tourist destinations in Antarctica. Here steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage, which is 11 km long and just 1,600 metres wide at its narrowest point. We will have the chance to land at Booth Island before continuing to Vernadsky Station which is a Ukrainian Antarctic Station.
