It’s rare that you can combine such juxtapositions as consorting with king penguins and nursing a pint in a twee English village.

If fluking, cetaceans, baleens, pec-slapping, krill and echolocation are your love language, prepare to be romanced. The Antarctic waters are frequented by eight whale species: orca, right, minke, Sei, humpback, blue, sperm and fin!
