During December of 2005, we spent 18 days aboard the "Spirit of Enderby", a small Russian polar research ship, on a Wings Birding Tours and Heritage Expeditions trip led by Steve Howell and other outstanding naturalists. The purpose of the trip was to study and photograph seabirds and marine mammals on and around several unique and beautiful subantarctic islands located on the Southern Ocean near New Zealand and Australia. We visited Snares, Enderby, Auckland, Macquarie (Australia), Antipodes, Bounty, Campbell, and Chatham Islands on a 2382 nautical mile loop that started and ended in the city of Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand.
