We invite you to discover the breathtaking beauty of Antarctica
Antarctica is the fifth-largest continent in the world and is almost 1 mile in thickness. Hard to believe it is considered a desert – because it receives only 8 inches of precipitation annually! Antarctica has no permanent human residents although from 1000 to 5000 people populate research stations there each year. By international agreement, it is the protected home to penguins, blue whales, orcas, colossal squids and fur seals. Its waters also support a number of fish such as Chilean sea bass.
Antarctica is a fascinating educational expedition like no other in the world because of its unique ecotourism nature.
The icebergs reflect the very blue of the ice cold waters. The ships Zodiac brings you close to tabular icebergs. Walk along beaches covered with thousands of penguins, and kayak among wildlife only seen in movies. You will travel with Ice Masters and Expedition Leaders of a caliber very few have achieved and be invited to participate in penguin studies. You will view rarely seen footage of life beneath the icy surface from just above in the comfort of the ship’s lounge. The 15 days spent on this voyage produce memories of a magnitude only achieved in your wildest dreams!
