Antarctica travel guide

Antarctica - Southern Ocean (Chapter)

5th Edition Nov 2012

This is the Southern Ocean chapter from Lonely Planet’s Antarctica guidebook.

The southern parts of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans form the fifth ocean of the world, the Southern Ocean. Its wild waters surround Antarctica and isolate it geographically, biologically and climatically from the rest of the world. Scattered around these waters are the islands that early explorers and sealers encountered before they actually found Terra Australis Incognita. Sailing these waters and sighting these windswept isles recreates the journeys of early adventurers.

See hundreds of thousands of king penguins at St Andrews BayCross the Antarctic Convergence, the oceanographic boundary separating Antarctica from the rest of the world.
