Sightseeing:

Paulet Island is a circular island about 1 mile (1.6 km) in diameter, lying 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of Dundee Island, off the northeastern end of the Antarctic Peninsula. It is composed of lava flows capped by a cinder cone with a small summit crater. Geothermal heat keeps parts of the island ice-free, and the presence of such heat suggests that it was last active within the last 1,000 years. Paulet Island was discovered by a British expedition (1839-1843) under James Clark Ross and named by him for Captain the Right Honorable Lord George Paulet, Royal Navy. Paulet Island is home to a colony of over 200,000 Adelie penguins, and is a common destination for sub-Antarctic sightseeing tours.
