Humpback Whale Pictures from Antarctica: 4x4WorldExplorer.com 2010 Patagonia-Antarctica Adventure
It took me ages to sort this out. Finally, I got the story of the Antarctica trip from 4x4WorldExplorer.com. 4×4 World Explorer are veterans in organising long distance 4×4 expedition-styled adventure vacations. Since 1992 they have covered the continents of Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Americas. In January, I joined them for a trip of my lifetime, venturing Patagonia of Argentina. The whole trip was inclusive of 11 days cruise of Antarctica. However, due to my busy schedule, sadly I didn’t make it to the Antarctica.
The group went there and had one of the best trips in their life. Let me share with you the pictures of the humpback whales they captured during their 7-8 days cruise near the Antarctica Peninsula. Pictures are as below.

Antarctica is one of the most remote areas on Earth. Most of the wildlife in Antarctica is unharmed and undisturbed due to its remoteness. Whale hunting used to be active in Antarctica ages ago. However, as whale hunting is banned, most of the whale species are unharmed and protected from humans.
Look out for more upcoming adventures from 4x4WorldExplorer.com at www.4x4WorldExplorer.com. They will be traveling in Brazil and other parts of South America in June 2010.
I hope you love the pictures. Thank you for reading.
