Sam's Exotic Travels to Cierva Cove, Antarctica

The most enjoyable of our "landings" was a Zodiac cruise in Cierva Cove, navigating among the icebergs in this beautiful cove.  Stunning!!!

 Cierva Cove (649S 6053WCoordinates: 649S 6053W) is a cove lying 6 nautical miles (11 km) southeast of Cape Sterneck in Hughes Bay, just south of Chavdar Peninsula along the west coast of Graham Land, Antarctica. Shown on an Argentine government chart of 1950. It was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1960 for Juan de la Cierva, Spanish designer of the autogiro, the first successful rotating wing aircraft in 1923
