Arrive in Ushuaia and board the boat. In the afternoon set sail along the scenic waterways of the Beagle Channel.
The next couple of days will be spent crossing the Drake Passage. There will be a series of on board lectures and presentations by Antarctic experts to help you learn about the geology and wildlife of the white continent. Up on deck you will have the opportunity to see many sea birds that follow the wake of the boat.
As you cross past the Antarctic Convergence the true expedition begins. You will sail directly to the ‘High Antarctica’, passing the Melchoir Islands and the scenic waterways and channels.
A full itinerary is impossible as it depends on weather conditions at the time. Whichever regions you will see much wildlife and incredible scenery.
Make a landing on Cuverville Island where you will find a huge colony of Gentoo penguins and pairs of Brown Skuas. It may be possible to visit Orne Island from which you can observe Weddell and Crabeater seals as well as a chinstrap penguin colony.
When you reach Neko Harbour you will have the opportunity to take your first step on the Antarctic continent proper. And what a place to do it, surrounded by the magnificent landscapes of glaciers. Spend plenty of time observing wildlife both by foot and by zodiac expeditions. Your naturalist guides will accompany you to answer any questions you have on the wildlife and geology of the region, and to help you make the most out of your time here.
Leave the Antarctic behind and cross back over the Drake Passage. Spend time with your fellow guests sharing stories of the things you’ve seen. Go back on deck to watch for wildlife and attend lectures and presentations given by Polar experts.
