Experience

ANTARCTICA

From the deck, drink in views of perfect ski tracks snaking down from your first Antarctic summit, then peer over the side into water so clear that Australis seems to hover above acrobatic penguins and divers 15-metres below.

Antarctica has the power to change your life. Protected by ice, sea and the turbulent birth of our planet’s weather, it is the greatest wilderness on Earth.

Departing Ushuaia in Argentina, we sail down the Beagle Channel and head south past Cape Horn.

Albatross and petrels accompany our Drake Passage crossing where we encounter variable seas and icebergs.

On day three or four we reach Palmer Archipelago, an island chain of soaring mountains and boisterous wildlife and the gateway to the Antarctic Peninsula.

Here we have the freedom to climb grounded icebergs and explore virgin summits, to don dry suits before entering Antarctica’s aquatic playground or to marvel at sculpted ice in sheltered waterways by sea kayak or scuba.

And there’s also plenty of time for relaxing onboard and revelling in the wild scenery.

Spend lazy hours among ice floes, camera or binoculars in hand, searching for crabeater, Weddell and leopard seals.

Gentoo, macaroni, chinstrap and Adélie penguin rookeries vie for our attention and Antarctic history beckons from Port Lockroy, Wordie Hut and Ukraine’s Vernadsky Station.

Crossing Gerlache Strait or slipping quietly down Lemaire Channel, we watch for bubble-netting humpbacks, hunting orcas and pods of minke whales.

Over the past two decades we have scouted the Peninsula from its northern tip to south of the Antarctic Circle.

We’ve found the safest anchorages in constantly changing weather and moving ice.

No matter your Antarctic desires, we’ll help fulfil your Antarctic dream.

Get in contact today and count yourself as one of the rare and privileged visitors to this majestic place.

Thank you and your team once again for your support on our recent Type-D Killer whale expedition. Our overwhelming success was due in large part to your skill and experience in the waters off Cape Horn and further south – we simply could not have done it without your expertise.
