Deception Island is an island in the South Shetland Islands off the Antarctic Peninsula in Antarctica. It is notable for having one of the safest harbors in Antarctica, and for being an active volcano. The center of the island is a large bay named Port Foster. The bay has a narrow entrance and is called Neptune's Bellows.

Things to Do

Touring the glaciers and icebergs is one of the main attractions here in Deception Island. View these enormous pieces ice from a tour-boat that will take you close enough to view. A great excursion for everybody.
