Trip Highlights

•   The wildlife is simply amazing in this extreme part of the planet. Scan the seas for seals; look out for minke, humpback and orca whales; spot rare birds on the Beagle Channel; and witness gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins on daily boat trips

•   The terrain of Antarctica is like nowhere else on earth. Stepping across the plains, mountains and beaches of the white continent as icebergs calve dramatically into the ocean is an experience that’s hard to describe

•   A polar plunge in Arctic waters could well be the most invigorating swims you will ever take. This is an ocean dip to write home about!

•   Optional excursions give you the chance to see the peninsula from more than one angle. Explore by sea kayak, or take the adventure to the next level with some polar ice camping (this fills up quickly, so book early)

Where you'll be staying

Ocean Atlantic

Ocean Atlantic is handsomely appointed and newly refurbished. Although Ocean Atlantic was built for a maximum capacity of 199 passengers, our adventure cruise only carries 132 – ensuring there’s plenty of room to stretch out. Complete with a gym, library, polar boutique and medical clinic, the Ocean Atlantic will quickly feel like your home away from home.
