Polar Kayaking Adventures

Most travellers head to Antarctica for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of getting up close to some of the natural world’s most unique and striking wildlife. If you choose to go kayaking through the ice-clogged waters of the Antarctic, you’ll have the chance to paddle around the edge of glaciers or past icebergs of white, green and blue.

And what better way to see seals and penguins hunting in the icy water or even a humpback whale breaching high in the air than kayaking at the same level as them?

This was truly a life changing adventure. Antartica is such a beautiful, unique place and the experience was only amplified by the knowledge of Intrepid's amazing guides. They went above and beyond to make sure we saw as much as possible and learned as much as possible while still respecting the environment and animal life that makes Antartica such a special place to visit.

The Intrepid and Ocean Endeavour team ran an amazing expedition! So well organised and enjoyable with plenty of informative talks and amazing experiences, in no small part due partly to the wonder of Antarctica and balanced by the efforts of the incredible crew. Thank you !

Fantastic Antarctic voyage. Made it to below the Antarctic Circle. I did the sea kayaking add on which put me in proximity with orcas and humpback whales. Very well run. Good food on the boat and numerous informative lectures. Highly recommend!

This expedition entitled Journey to the Antarctic Circle is a unique opportunity to appreciate and understand how all life on this beloved Earth is interwoven and interconnected. I fell in love with this sublime continent. Oftentimes there were no words to express what I was feeling. One wow moment after another. It will stay with me
