On arrival in Antarctica, your itinerary becomes flexible in order to maximise your discovery of this enchanting world of ice and water. Utilising the vast knowledge of your experienced naturalist guides and Expedition Leader, your Captain will charter a course based on the most exciting sightseeing opportunities available and the most favourable ice and weather conditions.
For the next six days you'll enjoy thrilling morning and afternoon Zodiac rides with your experienced Expedition Team, who will get you up close to the towering glaciers. Experience some of the most unique wildlife viewing in the world as you're taken to visit gentoo, chinstrap and Adélie penguin rookeries. You're also likely to encounter Weddell, crabeater, leopard and Antarctic fur seals.
These chilly waters are often frequented by hunting orca and the breaching forms of humpback and minke whales, so be sure to keep an eye out. Although landing sites will vary depending on conditions, the route will feature the most scenic bays and channels, including the stunning Lemeire Channel and Neko Bay, where icebergs loom in a shade of captivating blue. Head to the shores of Deception Island, an active volcano surrounded by distinctive black sand.
Once an old whaling station, you will see giant barrels and bleached white whale bones scattered along the deserted beaches as well as impressive elephant seals lounging along the shore. You may get the chance to stop at Port Lockroy, an active scientific base studying gentoo penguins. Here, you can take the chance to send a postcard with a rare Antarctic stamp. (B/L/D)
