Excursion #7- Cruising Pleneau Island. 1. Beautiful ice bergs. 2. An iceberg shaped like a sinking ship, dwarfing the zodiac beside it. 3. A leopard seal says hello! 4. In these clear waters, we were able to see the expanse of icebergs below the surface. 5. This iceberg’s arch is reminiscent of Arches National Park in Utah.
