We will then gather on the beach of Fildes Bay and board the Zodiacs to the vessel.

As we begin our voyage through the South Shetland Islands and the peninsula, we will sail through ice-filled fjords and between breathtaking icebergs. The various species of seabirds will follow behind the ship, such as the famous albatross. We will encounter penguins, seals, and whales during our exploration south to Hannah Point, Port Lockroy, Petermann Island, Paradise Bay, Cuverville, and the Deception Islands to name just a few. We will have daily landings to the surrounding areas in the zodiac boats as well as informative lectures from our nature and historical experts.

Day 07 : Return to King George Island and Punta Arenas

We will return to King George Island once again where we will disembark on the Zodiac boats at Fildes Bay near the Chilean base. We will head to the Teniente Marsh aerodrome to catch our flight back to Punta Arenas, Chile after which you will be transferred to the city if you plan to stay any additional nights.
