Overview Itinerary Pricing

Overview

Stunning scenery and wildlife abound in this expedition cruise along the western Antarctic Peninsula. Our vessel will navigate us alongside a mountainous and glacial landscape where we will have the opportunity to see gentoo and chinstrap penguins, Weddell and crabeater seals, wandering albatross and perhaps even humpback and minke whales. Looking for more adventure? Step aboard a zodiac cruise to see crisp icebergs and deep-cut fjords up close, go for a hike or kayak along the coast, or be the first of your friends to set up camp on "The White Continent." Grab your camera and welcome aboard.

We have 10 to 13 day voyages on offer throughout the season, which runs November through March.
