Pléneau is a low flat Island 1.2km long lying just NE of Hovgaard Island in the Wilhelm Archipelago in Antarctica. Located west of Booth Island at the southern end of the Lemaire Channel, it features an array of iceberg scenery, and indeed wasn’t identified as an island (and not a peninsula of Hovgaard Island) until 1957, 54 years after its naming. Visitors take extended Zodiac tours and are able, if the weather is suitable, to approach interesting icebergs. (An astonishing ninety-three percent of the world’s mass of icebergs are found surrounding the Antarctic.) Some visitors do at times use kayaks to get close and personal.

You will also see leopard seals. These are quite ferocious and often hang around the shore near colonies of penguins for easy access to their next meal. Gentoo penguins, kelp gulls, south polar skuas and Antarctic terns breed on the island. Flora consists of mosses, lichens, green algae and snow algae. As with all Antarctic sites, no more than 100 visitors are allowed on shore at one time, and breeding areas are closed for Antarctic terns and blue-eyed shags. Walk slowly and keep 5 m from wildlife.

On the shore, covered by large smooth rocks, spend some quality time with the friendly gentoo penguins. When you get down low near the ground, penguins are not intimidated by your height and often come right up to you to say ‘Hello’. They even approach visitors and fiddle with their boots - in a friendly manner of course. It is simply amazing. It is exciting to get some very up-close and personal photos and videos of these friendly creatures. One thing is certain, the intermittent snow squalls constantly remind visitors that they are in Antarctica.
