If you want a trip with more activities, we recommend our Active Basecamp Antarctica trip. These departures include all activities (except scuba diving) at no extra charge.
Other departures may have some of these activities. See Antarctica Departures & Pricing >>
The Emperor Penguin Antartica Voyages in the Weddell Sea are typically offered late November to early December.
These trips include helicopters so that you can get close to the penguins.
Falkland Islands & South Georgia Island
Trips to the Antarctic Peninsula with the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island are a bit longer — about 19-20 days.
This trip offers great diversity of wildlife and amazing scenery.
January-March 2015 may be the last opportunity for this once in a lifetime Antarctic experience!
The 32-Day Antarctica Voyage via the Ross Sea goes from Ushuaia, Argentina to Bluff, New Zealand visiting some of the most spectacular and rarely visiting areas of the Antarctic Peninsula.
Our whale watching safaris are typically in March when there is the best chance to see whales. The ship will go to special areas to find the whales. It is common to see Orcas, Minke Whales, Humpback, and Blue Whales.
The Polar Circle trips are typically offered mid-March. This is a great way to check off your Bucket List!
Flying Across the Drake Passage
The Antarctica Fly-Cruise Trip flies across the Drake Passage both ways instead of the usual 2 day choppy boat ride. These trips are either a 7-day “classic” itinerary to the Antarctic Peninsula or a 9-day trip to the Polar Circle.
