"Neko Habour 1" Antarctica Things to Do Tip by leigh767

Antarctica Things to Do: 515 reviews and 1,047 photos

  After the hour-long hike up a steep hill

This, without a doubt, is my favourite landing site out of all the amazing ones we had throughout the trip. Neko Habour is a gorgeous glacier bay with very active glaciers. We saw many, many calve and fall into the sea-- which made our expedition leader Jill a little nervous because of the mini tsunami created. Neko Harbour is so named because there was once a Japanese whaling station here, and "Neko" means "cat" in Japanese :0)
