Not only will this voyage take you into the Weddell Sea, South Georgia, and the South Orkney Islands of Antarctica, you will continue on into the South Atlantic Ocean heading north to Gough Island, the Tristan da Cunha Archipelago, and Cape Town, South Africa.

Day 01 : Embarkation

We will leave from Ushuaia in the afternoon heading through the Beagle Channel

Day 02-03 : Crossing the Drake Passage

As we cross into the Drake Passage we will be accompanied by a wide range of sea birds such as albatross, petrels, and fulmars.

Day 04 : Hope Bay/Brown Bluff

We plan to make our first landing onto the Antarctic continent at Hope Bay and Brown Bluff where we will have an opportunity to see various Gentoo Penguins, Weddell Seals, Leopard Seals, and Orcas.

Day 05 : Devil Island/Paulet Island

Devil Island, located at the tip of the Weddell Sea, is a surrounded by enormous table ice bergs, part of the Larsen Ice Shelf. We will climb a stunning vantage point to get a look at the beautiful scenery. At Paulet Island we will observe the remaining Adelie Penguin colony near the ruins of the twentieth century Nordenskiöld Expedition ruins.

Day 06 : Sailing the Weddell Sea

We will head back out to the Weddell Sea and sail alongside the drifting sea ice. One these ice flows we will likely see various young Emperor Penguins

Day 07 : South Orkneys

We plan to make a stop at the South Orkney Islands to visit the Argentinean Base located there.

Day 08 : Sailing to South Georgia

As we sail the sea to South Georgia we will again encounter a number of different sea birds.

Day 09-11 : South Georgia

In South Georgia we will explore whaling settlements such as Grytviken, where today penguins rather than humans walk the streets. We will also visit King Edwards Point, the location of the grave of Shackleton. During our time in South Georgia we will observe the various wildlife habitats of King Penguins and breeding Albatrosses in Salisbury Plain and Albatross Island in the Bay of Isles. Our last day in South Georgia will be spent in Cooper Bay where we will observe Chinstrap Penguins, Macaroni Penguins, and Sooty Albatrosses. Later we will sail to Gold Harbour to visit another important King Penguin colony and to see Elephant and Fur Seals. This is a beautiful area for walks and exploring. We will conclude our visit with a Zodiac excursion through the magnificent Drygalski Fjord and Larsen Harbour.

Day 12-16 : Antarctic Convergence

We will be joined by a pleasant tailwind as we pass through the Westerlies. On both sides of the Antarctic Convergence, we observe many species and great numbers of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic seabirds.

Day 17 : Gough Island

Today we plan to take a Zodiac tour around Gough Island depending on the weather conditions. In the past we have been able to observe an impressive show of wildlife and beautiful scenery and look forward to making this happen again.

Day 18-20 : Tristan da Cunha Archipelago

We have a stop planned in the Tristan da Cunha archipelago on the west side of the main island. We also have an excursion planned to Nightingale Island with its millions of stunning seabirds such as Yellow-Nose Albatrosses and Brown Noddies.

Day 21-25 : At Sea

We will continue at sea now into the sub-tropical waters home to a whole new mix of seabirds and dolphins. We will enter the rich Benguela Current and will hopefully catch a glance at wintering northern seabirds like the Long-Tailed Skua and Arctic Terns.

Day 26 : Disembarkation in Cape Town

We will arrive in Cape Town and disembark. Many will fly home from Cape Town while others may decide to stay on for Part II of the journey.
