Photos from Antarctica 2013.2014 - Operation Relentless

I've finally got around to uploading a small selection of my photos from 'Operation Relentless' - Sea Shepherds 10th Antarctic Whale Defence Campaign. In the end we were at sea for 95 days. In that time we found the Japanese Whaling Fleet a record 4 times, including the time when we found them butchering a few protected Minke whales, with the images and footage hitting the news around the world. We also saw some of the most amazing icebergs, were attacked at midnight by the harpoon vessels, visited the continent of Antarctica at Cape Adare, and I went for a dive under some ice, too.

Upon return, the Japanese Government announced that they were 784 whales short of their quota of 1035 - blaming us for their poor result. After that, the International Court Of Justice ruled that their whaling within the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary was indeed illegal - as we already knew - and the height of the good news came when the Government announced that they would not be sailing to Antarctica for the first time in over 20 years.

All in all, a good trip.
