Antarctic Peninsula & South of the Circle
On King George Island we are at the stepping off point for the Antarctic Peninsula. A host of choices is now open to us and depending on the ice and weather conditions the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula is yours to explore. Our experienced leaders, will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day. This allows us to make best use of the prevailing weather, ice conditions and wildlife opportunities. Because we are so far south, we will experience approximately 18-20 hours' daylight and the days will be as busy as you wish. There is plenty of time for sleep when you get home!
Once we arrive in the calmer waters of Bransfield and Gerlache Straits, we hope to make landings and do other activities like kayaking, diving and snorkeling two to three times a day. To get ashore we will use Zodiacs. Sometimes we will cruise along spectacular ice cliffs, or make contact with whales, penguins and seals. In these situations we will appreciate the distinct advantage of being on a small vessel, which gives everyone the opportunity to experience these very special close encounters with wildlife.
