Antarctica Cruises & Expeditions

In Antarctica’s unique environment Waterproof Cruises & Expeditions challenges the obstacles of this remote destination and introduces explorers to a full concept of the Antarctic, above and below the ocean.
Antarctica remains the last vast wilderness on earth. A continent encircled by pack ice, huge tabular icebergs and covered with an ice sheet miles deep. Remote, inhospitable and without permanent inhabitants. It is the windiest and highest continent, which is capped by an ice sheet over 4 km thick in places. An expedition cruise to Antarctica is the best way to explore this unique place.

Antarctica Wildlife

For many, the most appealing aspect of cruising Antarctica is to see its wildlife. Although there are only a few native species, those that have adapted to the harsh environment thrive in large numbers. Seals, whales and Penguin populations are counted in the tens of thousands in some rookeries. The birds and mammals in Antarctica depend on this world where mountains of ice move in beat with the tides. Few life experiences are as mesmerizing as seeing leopard seals, albatrosses and penguins in their untouched natural habitat.

Cruising Antarctica

Humans never inhabited Antarctica and exploration of the continent has only started recently. The only sounds you hear are natural - wildlife, water and the occasional boom of icebergs calving. If you listen closely, you can hear your heart beating with excitement!
We offer many different cruises to Antarctica, some journeys include a visit to the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. Our experts are happy to help you find the perfect Antarctica cruise for you.
