Ocean Ports of Call

Cape Adare - Antarctica Highlights:
Victoria Land, Adele Penguins
Alternative Port:  Ross Sea   - click for cruises that visit this port.

Cape Adare lies in northern Victoria Land on the Ross Sea, a southern extension of the Pacific Ocean which makes a deep indentation into the circular continental outline of Antarctica. The coastal region is dotted with active and extinct volcanos in particular around Cape Adare and Cape Hallett.

Cape Adare is dominated by the 4,000m high Admiralty Range, discovered in 1841 by Captain James Ross. Behind the broad open beach there is the 1899 hut where Carsten Borchgrevink was the leader of the first expedition to over-winter on the Antarctic Continent. High above the hut is the lonely grave and cross of Borchgrevink's biologist. Cape Adare is now home to 260,000 pairs of Adelie Penguins, the largest rookery anywhere of this species - an absolutely staggering sight.
