Before departing, I chose to participate in the sea-kayaking option. It sounded like a lot of fun to paddle around the Antarctic waters. The only problem was that my previous sea-kayaking experience was nonexistent, so my first paddle was more than challenging. But I did persist and had a successful paddle or two among the icebergs.
I think one of my favorite moments was kayaking in a pretty fierce snowstorm. We were on the shore of a beautiful penguin island surrounded by icebergs and it seemed that I was living in some sort of a dream. It really was amazing.
