Days 3-4 Drake Passage
As the trip navigates through the famous waters of the Drake Passage, start to experience some of Antarctica’s rare wildlife. While the mixing of polar and temperate waters occurs, the nutrient-rich waters rise to the surface and draw in a host of seabirds, whales and marine life, so look out for a feeding spectacle.

Days 5-10 South Shetland Islands & the Antarctic Peninsula
Venture into the heart of the Antarctic waters, as the voyage travels through various weather, ice and ocean conditions. Expect the unexpected, and be ready to disembark in order to meet the local penguins, or maybe go for a ‘polar plunge’ in the icy waters of Neko Harbour.

Days 11-12 Drake Passage
As your Antarctic adventure draws to a close, the feelings may be bittersweet – but the journey back across the Drake Passage is the perfect chance to relax and reflect, enjoying your last taste of Antarctic air. Share stories and photos with your new friends, talk to the expedition team to learn more about any of the remarkable things you have seen, or spend some last moments on the deck to watch for whales and seabirds.
