An expedition to Antarctica on a wildlife cruise is a must for all nature lovers.
The South Pole to the is home to some of the world’s most amazing marine life, seabirds and incredible invertebrates.
Cruise visit in the southern hemisphere summer (Nov-Mar), along with many different species of wildlife.
There are seals, whales, Orcas, penguins, and a host of other sea birds to see on our Antarctic adventure cruise.
Most of the wildlife migrates to Antarctica to breed. This is one of the most beautiful and unexplored places on our planet.
Tiny invertebrates survive the winters by freezing, and, as temperatures warm, use internal anti-freeze to begin life again.
The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen - or am ever likely to see - when at anchor near Winter Island. Slamming vodkas at the Vernadsky station the following day. Display by a minke whale at Paradise Harbour. Taking in the majestic beauty of this pristine environment on an isolated promontory on Cuverville Island. I could go on.

The cruise was great - fantastic organisation, very professional staff and all very interesting. We can’t recommend the cruise highly enough but it was not full – about 90 on board out of a possible 120. We were tempted to go on to Antarctica!

The Tigua are well known throughout Ecuador for their colourful folk art: wooden carved masks and paintings of rural life. They are llama and sheep herders and paint onto sheep skins. The bright paintings are small in size with an amazing amount of detail; they generally …
