Antarctica is a spectacularly unpredictable environment. It’s one of the reasons we love going back again and again. A 10-story iceberg suddenly appearing, a rarely accessible cove deciding to open its door, or a dozen curious whales breaking the water surface all around our vessel – these are just some of the experiences that can present themselves anytime, anywhere.
So while we offer a full range of programs and guided experiences on a daily basis, we also place a high priority on improvisation. If that means veering off course to get a glimpse of Antarctica rarely seen by human eyes, or suddenly calling a half-dozen Zodiacs into service to get up close and personal with a family of Orcas, it’s all part of the program with us.
Our 12-day Antarctic Peninsula voyage offers an abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities as well as possible stops at active scientific or historic bases.
Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins abound, and Weddell and Crabeater seals are often found hauled out to rest along with predatory Leopard seals and the assertive Antarctic Fur seal. Minke and Humpback whales are frequent visitors in the late season and Orca sightings are also common.
- Limited kayaking excursions are available for passengers over 16 years. These need to be booked prior to departure and secure you a spot on all kayaking throughout the voyage. Dry suits, PFDs, gloves & booties provided.
- Exclusive overnight camping option is available on all Antarctic Peninsula voyages. All equipment is provided and the excursion is available for guests over 12 years of age. As camping is limited to one night per voyage it is essential to prebook!
