Palmer Station is located on Anvers Island at the northern end of the Antarctic Peninsula. It is Antarctica's only U.S. station north of the Antarctic Circle. The National Science Foundation allows up to 12 tourist ships to visit the station. Ships carry anywhere from 80 to more than 1,000 passengers. Smaller private yachts and sailboats also make the pilgrimage to the region. Most everyone at the station pitches in when tourists come ashore. A popular stop is the station’s small store, which stocks such things as T-shirts and fleeces and stickers with various station and USAP logos.

The tours end in the Palmer dining hall, which is temporarily rearranged into a reception area where station residents mingle with their guests, answering the usual range of questions: Where are you from? What do you do here? What’s it like to live and work here? Tea and coffee are available, as well as chewy chocolate brownies, popular enough to garner a mention in Lonely Planet’s Antarctica guidebook. Of course, there are certainly other places to see such displays of Mother Nature in all her polar splendor. But few also offer the opportunity to see a real Antarctic research station.

The location is a hotspot for wildlife, where Adélie penguins mate and defend their downy chicks against opportunistic brown skuas, while monstrous elephant seals play the marine mammals’ version of sumo wrestling only a few minutes’ boat ride away from the station. Giant petrels placidly squat on their single brood on nests made of small rocks or limpet shells. The area is also home to several types of seals: fur seals, elephant seals, crab-eater seals and leopard seals. Interestingly, Palmer supports a variety of science programs, most focused on the marine ecosystem.
