From Openwaterpedia

noun - An iceberg is a large piece of freshwater ice that has broken off a glacier or an ice shelf and is floating freely in open water. It may subsequently become frozen into pack ice (one form of sea ice). As it drifts into shallower waters, it may come into contact with the seabed, a process referred to as seabed gouging by ice.

Antarctic Circle Ice Challenge

The Antarctic Circle Ice Challenge was an unprecedented ice swim by six South African ice swimmers south of the Antarctic Circle at 66.5622° South. It was a charity swim with two causes: SASSI or the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative and the SEAL Open Water Swimming Trust. Ryan Stramrood, Ram Barkai and Kieron Palframan completed an Ice mile in Neko Harbour in Antarctica. Andrew Chin, Toks Viviers and Gavin Pike completed an ice mile in Paradise Harbour in Antarctica in -1ºC (30.2ºF) water among leopard seals, orcas and icebergs.
