 With this voyage we are proud offer the best prices to the white continent found anywhere.  Enjoy Antarctica up close and personal on this newly refurbished vessel. Step ashore and walk among the penguins and experience this incredible continent first hand. 

 

Starting from Ushuaia, the world’s most southerly city, set sail across the infamous Drake Passage to the wild and untamed Antarctica. Breathtaking scenery awaits you - snow-capped mountain ranges, ice-filled channels, immense yet beautifully-shaped icebergs and spectacular glaciers. Not to mention the plethora of wildlife - from whales, seals and a huge variety of seabirds to vast penguin colonies. 

20th February 2019: We are both honoured and excited to announce that Campbell Remess AKA Bumble and his chaperone will be joining us on this journey as our very special guests. This kid is making history with his kindness, making teddy bears every day and gifting them to sick and needy children across the globe. We think that what he does is so amazing we decided he deserved a trip to the end of the earth and everyone on this trip will be fortunate to meet this amazing young man. Though we have suggested he should just use this to take a break, Bumble has insisted he will take a sewing machine and create the worlds first "Made in Antarctica by Bumble" teddy bear range that he will then use to gift further or auction to raise funds for his Kindness Cruise project.

There will be an evening a briefing at 7:30pm to run through details of embarkation the following day. Ushuaia is the most southerly city in the world and the capital of Tierra del Fuego, with a dramatic setting overlooking the Beagle Channel, surrounded by mountains. It is a major port for Antarctic bound vessels and an interesting city to explore.

 

Day 2 Leave Ushuaia

This afternoon we will meet with your Chimu escort in a central location, before heading to the ship. We board our vessel in the world’s southernmost city, Ushuaia. After meeting our fellow passengers and finding our way around our new home we set sail through the famed beagle channel. Passing incredible scenery we glimpse our last sight of land as we head due south towards Antarctica

 

Day 3 Drake Passage

We spend the day at sea, through the legendary waters of the Drake passage that is named after famous English seafarer, Sir Frances Drake. If conditions allow, enjoy the ample outer deck space to look for dolphins, whales and orcas as well as seabirds including the mighty Albatross following the ship. A comprehensive optional lecture program will also get under way, with some fascinating insights into Antarctic history, geology, biology and everything in between.

 

Day 4 Drake Passage and Arriving South Shetland Island

Today we continue crossing the Drake passage and hope to make landfall by early evening if conditions are favourable. The first sighting of land always brings great excitement on any expedition south.

 

Day 5-8 Antarctic Peninsula

For the next four days we explore the Antarctic Peninsula that is famed for its majestic mountains, glaciers, calm waters and abundance of wildlife. Our lecture program continues during our voyage and sightseeing during this period is at its most spectacular off the ship’s outer decks. We hope to visit an active research station during our time on the peninsula (subject to approval) as well as explore well known sites such as as the Lemaire Channel, Deception Island, Paradise bay and Neko harbour. Whilst on the Peninsula we will have our famous Antarctica quiz as well as a host of interesting night time activities.

 

Day 9-10 Drake Passage

Leaving Antarctica behind we sail north to our home port of Ushuaia. We have time to reflect on our amazing journey and hear more wonderful talks on Antarctica.

 

Day 11 Ushuaia

After breakfast we disembark the ship. We wave goodbye to our new friends and continue on our journey or home. Transfer to the airport is included.
