This special “Deep South” Expedition sails to the far reaches of the Antarctic Peninsula to fulfill your once-in-a-lifetime experience of crossing the Antarctic Circle. You’ll fly from Punta Arenas, Chile, to King George Island along the Antarctic Peninsula to save two days of crossing the tempestuous Drake Passage. This also affords us more days to land and travel to possibly reach all the way to Marguerite Bay, even farther south than the Antarctic Circle. Besides spectacular scenery such as glacier-covered mountains and aqua-blue tabular icebergs lit by soft polar light, you’ll visit Adelie and Gentoo Penguin colonies, interact with Orca, Humpback, and Minke Whales, plus Zodiac cruise around icebergs topped with penguins, Leopard, Crabeater, and Weddell Seals.
Join us to immerse in this truly pristine paradise and be engulfed in the wonder of nature. This is a shared expedition between Cheesemans’ Ecology Safaris and One Ocean Expeditions; we will provide four leaders to compliment those provided by One Ocean Expeditions.
