Polar Regions Antarctica Cruise

Best of Antarctica

Enter a spellbinding world of snow and ice as you voyage to Antarctica, a continent that has long captivated intrepid explorers. Set sail aboard the comfortable, spacious and well-appointed Ocean Endeavour on an exclusive 11-, 12- or 14-day voyage, to discover truly unbelievable wildlife and the world’s most remarkable scenery.

As you explore this icy wilderness, you’ll not only be accompanied by an expert expedition team, but also by penguins, seals, whales and seabirds, set against a backdrop of towering icebergs, snow-capped peaks, imposing glaciers and ice-choked waters. Adventures like this don’t come along every day–there’s simply nowhere else on earth like Antarctica.

The highlights of the Best of Antarctica voyage are many. Explore an unspoiled wilderness, uninhabited by man, with a density of wildlife, busy penguin rookeries, opportunities to spot seals and whales such as minke, southern right and humpbacks. Enjoy daily Zodiac excursions, onshore landings and take advantage of a range of adventure options during the voyage such as kayaking, camping, photography and snowshoeing.

Various themed departures offer a specific focus. The 12-day Whale Discovery itinerary departs at the peak of whale migration season (February and March), offering the best opportunity to see these majestic ocean dwellers. And the alternative, 14-day Best of Antarctica In Depth itinerary offers 2-3 additional days exploring the Antarctic Peninsula, with unique visits along the Weddell Sea.

Passage is aboard 200-guest Ocean Endeavour, a comfortable small expedition ship expertly engineered to explore the polar regions. This ship offers great food, excellent guides, a Jacuzzi, a salt water pool, spa facilities and even his and her saunas with a large window to watch icebergs float by. On board, benefit from a variety of activities including educational lectures on history, geology, and ecology by the expedition team.
