Oceanwide Expeditions Reaches Snow Hill Emperor Penguin Colony

Emperor Penguins

On Thursday Oceanwide Expeditions reached the remote emperor penguin colony on Snow Hill Island for the second year running, according to a statement.


Using the helicopters staged aboard its vessel, the 100-guest Ortelius, Oceanwide flew passengers to this rarely visited Antarctic location, then led small hiking groups toward the site – one of the largest breeding colonies of the world’s most iconic penguin species, the company said.
