Where you'll be staying

Ocean Endeavour

The largest in our fleet, the Ocean Endeavour offers an unmatched sense of space.  She has plenty of outdoor space on the expansive decks to watch the magnificent scenery go by.  Spacious lounge and bar areas for relaxing with a drink or chatting to fellow travellers.  This ship allows you to be part of it all, or to enjoy Antarctica in quiet solitude.  There are a variety of cabins to choose from offering something for those on a budget, a great value option for solo travellers, and for those who like the finer things; there is something for everyone.

Endeavour is also the only polar expedition ship in Antarctica focused on health and wellness, and offers a contemporary approach to cuisine and newly-designed health and fitness features. Facilities include a spa serviced by organic spa provider VOYA, His & Hers saunas, a salt water pool, a gym, and a juice and smoothie bar. Complimentary activities include yoga and stretching classes, an exclusive Polar Photography program, the Scientists in Residence program, and more adventure activities than any other vessel.

Itinerary & Notes
Bienvenidos! Welcome to Ushuaia. With nothing planned apart from an important welcome meeting this evening, you’ve got today to begin exploring the world’s southernmost city. Take a stroll down Avenida San Martin, or for the more adventurous, how about tackling part of the Martial Mountains for a killer view over the Beagle Channel. After meeting your local leader and fellow travellers at your welcome meeting, why not head out for an optional dinner. Tonight’s all about introductions, and what better place to do it than with a traditional asado – an Argentinean-style barbecue.
