Get Your Camera Ready!
It’s not like there haven't been a lot of photo opportunities so far on this adventure, but Antarctica is perhaps the most picturesque. Now you are in one of the most remote areas of the world! You'll go ashore with our expedition team to explore the impressive Antarctic scenery and see penguins and seals up close. From deck there are lots of chances to see whales as well. You'll enjoy close encounters with wildlife and glaciers, old whaling stations and their relics, field days ashore, and explore the waters and ice in kayaks and small boats. While in Antarctica, we will attempt to land on several sites. You'll see the South Shetlands and Cuverville Island, home to one of the largest known colonies of gentoo penguins. Among the places we will try to see and explore are Neko Harbour, beautifully located in the innermost 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 the humpback whales that visit in December. Weather, wind, and ice conditions dictate our program and schedule. Safety is always the first priority and the captain will decide the final sailing schedule during the voyage.
