Aitcho Islands Antarctica Cruise Port

Location:

Tender by inflatable zodiac boats.

Aitcho is a phonetic spelling of "H.O.," which stands for hydrographic office, a distinction this island has had for many years. These islands rest between Robert and Greenwich Islands. This group of islands was charted and named in 1936 by the British Admiralty's Hydrographic Office (thus the H.O.). The island is home to gentoo and chinstrap penguin with skuas, large black hawk-like birds that will steal penguin chicks.
