Emperor Penguins do fly! This underwater video taken in Antarctica shows that the water is really the penguin's world and that they really do fly in their world. This ballet of penguins has been described as almost magical. Watch for the change of view switch to penguin point of view.

We found these Emperor Penguins swimming in the hole in the ice that our ship made. We were at the Southern end of the Ross Sea, waiting for the weather to clear so we could fly into the Dry Valleys of Antarctica

The video was shot at the Southern most part of the Antarctic waters, in the Ross Sea. The underwater part was shot with a GoPro by Peter Harrison of Zegrahm Expeditions as part of Zegrahm trip to the Ross Sea. This was the next to the last trip on an passenger ice breaker, the Kapitan Kalibnikov. Unfortunately, this represents the end of an era - there are no more ice breakers that carry passengers to Antarctica as of 2012.
