Polar Regions Antarctica Cruise

Journey to the Antarctic Circle

Set sail for an adventure like no other. Spend 14 days following in the wake of Captain Cook as you cross the Antarctic Circle, home to the midnight sun and towering icebergs.

On board the well-appointed Ocean Endeavour, leave Ushuaia and civilization behind and journey towards the hauntingly beautiful icy wilderness of the Antarctic Continent. Experience the thrill of witnessing seals lie on ice floes, whales breaching the frigid waters and penguins patrolling the rocky shoreline in vast numbers. Enjoy jaw-dropping views witnessed by seldom few as you explore ice-filled bays by Zodiac, landing on Antarctica itself for onshore excursions.

Take advantage of extra days at the Antarctic Peninsula for more places, more landings and more time to see Antarctica’s incredible wildlife and landscapes. Enjoy daily Zodiac excursions to iconic landing sites, abundant with birdlife and busy penguins, and witness icebergs in a thousand different shades of blue. Experience almost endless daylight in high summer once you are inside the Antarctic Circle. And push farther south than most Antarctic expeditions, exploring the remoteness of this less-visited part of the Antarctic Peninsula.

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 (at a 1:8 guide-to-guest ratio), 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.
