One of the most pleasant landings in Antarctica, Half Moon Island has a sizeable rookery of chinstrap penguins as well as kelp gulls and nesting Antarctic terns. It is crescent-shaped and located to the north of the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula and is only 2 km long. Whales are often seen patrolling the shores, and this small island offers magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. Half Moon Island is where the Argentine Navy operates the summer base Teniente Camara. The island was known to sealers, if no one else, as early as 1821. Sealers were notorious for keeping secret the location of valuable sites. Many Antarctic birds breed on the island – Chinstrap penguins, Shags, Wilson's Storm-petrels, Kelp Gulls, Snowy
Sheathbills, Antarctic Terns and skua.
