Get your camera ready!
It’s not like it hasn’t been a lot of photo opportunities so far on this adventure, but Antarctica is probably where you will use most of your memory card. Come ashore to explore the impressive Antarctic scenery, penguins and seals. From deck there are lots of chances of seeing whales as well. Enjoy close encounters with wildlife and glaciers, old whaling stations and relics. Trust us when we say that you will not be bored for one single second.
Now you are in one of the most remote areas of the world! Weather, wind and ice conditions dictate our programme and schedule. Safety is always the first priority and the captain will decide the final sailing schedule during the voyage.
While in Antarctica, we will attempt to land on several sites. Among the places we will see are The South Shetlands and Cuverville Island, home to one of the largest known colonies of gentoo penguins. We may also explore Neko Harbour, beautifully located in the inner part of Andvord Bay; Paradise Harbour which got its descriptive name from the whalers during the last century; and Wilhelmina Bay or “Whale-mina Bay” as it is called due to its spectacular scenery and humpback whales in December.
During our stay here, you can come ashore and join our expedition team to see the penguins, seals and possibly whales up close; enjoy field days, kayaking and exploring the waters and ice in small boats.
