1November is a fascinating time. Its when the penguins come ashore to built their nests and you find them stealing pebble stones. It's also more pristine, beautiful untouched snow-covered lands.
There is a bit more about the antarctic seasons here http://www.antarpply.com/eng/antarctic-seasons.php
Hope that helps

2A lot of seal species pup in November - I've seen Weddells, Ross and crabeater seals with pups, some having very recently given birth (still bloody). Penguins are building their nests as well. I'm not sure whether it's much different on the Peninsula side - I'm in East Antarctica where very few tourist ships go. The sea ice can be quite thick in November - the maximum extent of sea ice is in September with the minimum in March, but if you're only going to the Peninsula it shouldn't be much of a problem.
