Deception Island is the caldera of an active volcano in the South Shetland Islands archipelago, just off the Antarctic Peninsula. It is a very popular stop on expeditions such as ours as it is the most suitable place to do the highly anticipated Polar Plunge, which I have now done three times and do not feel the need to do ever, ever again. It’s also a great place for a hike around the various craters and is home to a number of interesting ruins, like a derelict aircraft hangar, rusting boilers and tanks.

Even though historically it was used as a refuge from storms and ice, it is pretty much always terrible, dreary weather at Deception Island. 

Large eruptions have occurred roughly every 40-50 years, the last being in 1969, so… we’re overdue and I often wonder each time we go, if today might be the day. 

As you’ll see from this Google Map, Deception Island is horseshoe shape with a very narrow entrance. In the middle of that entrance is a large, submerged rock which is to blame for at least 1 shipwreck and many, many “dings” over the years. 

While not quite as scenic as some of the other places we visit, Deception Island holds a great deal of history and everyone (no, not everyone) enjoys a chance to take a dip in polar waters, which is usually 1°C / 34°F. Not pleasant, but quite invigorating.
