  Port Map

Deception Island is one of the South Shetland Islands. It has one of Antarctica's safest harbours.

  • Deception is the caldera of active volcano, that damaged local scientific stations both in 1967 and in 1969. Previously, the isle held a whaling station.
  • Today, it is a scientific outpost with Spanish and Argentine research bases on it.
  • The island is uninhabited, but became a popular tourist destination in Antarctica due to its chinstrap penguin colonies and the possibility of making warm baths by digging into the sands of its beach.
  • Mount Flora on Deception is the first Antarctic site where fossilized plants have been discovered.
  • On January 30, 2007, the Hurtigruten cruise ship MS Nordkapp ran aground off Deception Island's coast. As result from the grounding accident, fuel from the vessel washed into the bay. Ecological damage has not been determined yet. On February 4, 2007 Gabriel de Castilla research station reported that sand and water tests were clean.

Highlights: Volcanic caldera waters, Whaler’s Bay , Pendulum Cove
