Cruise Elephant Island, Shetland Islands overview

Elephant Island is the northernmost Falkland Island. Elephant first saw human visitors in 1916, when the ship Endurance went down in Arctic waters. Sir Ernest Shackelton and his crew found shelter on Elephant, so named for its plentiful population of elephant seals. Nature lovers delight in the island's rich array of chinstrap and macaroni penguins, as well as--of course--its trademark seals.
