Half Moon Island is a 1.25-mile long, crescent shaped island lying in the curve of Half Moon Bay on the east side of Livingston Island and was known to sealers as early as 1821. There is a colony of Chinstrap penguins here as well as a few Gentoo. There were a group of Antarctic fur seals hauled out on the beach. This is our first Penguin encounter. We now know why we wear "boots".
