The 40-year-old – who also does photo guides in the region – was with a group of tourists when they stopped off by the iceberg in Brown Bluff, Antarctica.

Dave, from Canada, said: “I was driving my zodiac boat around, looking at ice, penguins and seals with tourists when we came across this particularly awesome iceberg.
