Ocean Ports of Call

Balleny Islands - Antarctica Highlights:
Rugged, remote glacierized islands
This chain of rugged, remote islands stretches is 95% glacierized and have never been inhabited. They are New Zealand territory, part of the Ross Dependency. English whaling captains John Balleny and Thomas Freeman were the first people to visit the islands. Freeman stepped ashore on 9 February 1839 - this landing was the first landing ever south of the Antarctic Circle. The Ballenys consist of the Ross Dependency, Young, Row, Borradaile, Buckle, Sabrina, Monolith and Sturge Islands - together, they stretch 120 miles (195 km) north to south. Brown Peak, the highest point (1524 m), is on Sturge Island, and has never been climbed. No landings can be made on Sabrina Island without special permission, due to its isolated state. About 500 Adelies nest on the islands, as well as the chinstrap and macaroni penguin.
