Get ready to set sail through the South Shetland Islands, and into the Weddell Sea along the Antarctic Peninsula. You will see rich wildlife and incredible landscapes all seen as normal during a trip to Antarctica!

Day 01 :

We embark in the afternoon and set sail from Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. We continue through the Beagle Channel in the evening.

Day 02-03 :

We will spend the next two days sailing across the Drake Passage and on to the Antarctic Convergence where we will be met by various seabirds including Wandering Albatrosses, Grey-Headed Albatrosses, Black-Browed Albatrosses, Light-Mantled Sooty Albatrosses, Cape Pigeons, Southern Fulmars, Wilson’s Storm Petrels, Blue Petrels, and Antarctic Petrels. As we approach the Shetland Islands we will see our first icebergs.

Day 04-09 :

We will sail through the icy Antarctic Sound into the Weddell Sea where we will see huge tabular icebergs marking our arrival to the Antarctic Peninsula. We plan to visit Paulet Island, home to a million pairs of Adelie Penguins along with the remains of the Nordenskjold expedition, Seymour Island, and Snow Hill Island. These locations are all filled with rich history which will be provided by our nature and historical lecturers. We might also visit Brown Bluff and the Argentinean station Esperanza on the Antarctic Continent. Be sure to keep an eye out for stray Emperor Penguins! We will head south through the Antarctic Sound where we hope to offer a zodiac cruise around the rarely visited Astrolabe Island, host to Antarctic Fulmars, Chinstrap Penguins, Brown Skuas, Blue-Eyed Shags, Weddell Seals, and Antarctic Fur Seals. As we approach Neko Harbour and Paradise Bay, the southernmost points of our voyage, we will set foot on the Antarctic Continent among the huge glaciers. It is here that we will have a good chance of seeing Humpback and Minke Whales. We hope to land at Baily Head on Deception Island, a huge volcano whose crater opens up to the sea providing the ship with a natural harbor. We will find hot springs, an abandoned whaling station as well as wildlife including Cape Pigeons, Dominican Gulls, Brown and South Polar Skuas, and Antarctic Terns. Whalers Bay is home to Black-Bellied Storm Petrels and Wilson’s Storm Petrels. We continue to Hannah Point, another of the many biodiverse stops in our journey. Here we will see Elephant Seals, Cape Pigeons, Southern Giant Petrels, Macaroni Penguins, and Gentoo Penguins.

Day 10-11 :

We will join the many seabirds as we sail back through the Drake Passage.

Day 12 :

We will arrive in Ushuaia in the morning and disembark.
