Adventure spotlight - the drake passage
antarctica is considered the last great wilderness on earth. untouched by civilization and steeped in stark, chilling beauty, visitors are bound to experience a place unlike any other. the voyage to antarctica is considered a rite of passage, especially when crossing the legendary drake passage.
the drake passage is a notorious sea passage with unpredictable water conditions, stretching 600 miles between cape horn, chile to the south shetland islands. named after british explorer sir francis drake, the passage is where the pacific, atlantic, and southern oceans converge, a mixture of cool and warm sea waters. there are no significant landmasses in the drake passage, contributing to the uninterrupted flow of the antarctic circumpolar current, which carries more than 600 times the volume of the amazon river.
the passage was formed 41 million years ago, when the arm of land that connected south america to antarctica fell away. the arm also separated the pacific and atlantic oceans, making antarctica much warmer than current day. with the merging of the oceans and the start of the antarctic circumpolar current, antarctica cooled significantly and formed its renowned ice-cap.
known for its unpredictable weather, the drake passage is daunting but unlike any other sea voyage. the passage has gained a reputation as the “drake shake or the drake lake”. depending on the weather, the sea can range from mighty waves and storms to calm, glass-like water. no matter the weather, the experience is a taste of true expedition.
crossing the drake passage is considered an initiation into antarctica and is the gateway to pristine and boundless wilderness.
A hole the size of lake superior has opened up in the ice of antarctica. apparently, this has been a thing since the 70's, it comes and goes from year to year. maybe an underwater volcano? what do you think?
