Itnierary:

Day 1: Ushuaia - In the afternoon, we embark in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world located at the Beagle Channel and sail through this scenic waterway for the rest of the evening.

Days 2 & 3: At sea - During these two days we sail across the Drake Passage. When we cross the Antarctic Convergence, we arrive in the circum-Antarctic up welling zone. In this area we may see Wandering albatrosses, Grey-hHeaded albatrosses, Black-browed albatrosses, Light-mantled Sooty albatrosses, Cape petrels, Southern Fulmars, Wilson’s Storm petrels, Blue petrels and Antarctic petrels. Near the South Shetland Islands, we spot our first icebergs.

Days 4 – 7(8) Antarctica - We will sail directly to “High Antarctica”, passing the Melchior Islands and the Schollaert Channel between Brabant and Anvers Island.  On Cuverville Island, a small precipitous island, nestled between the mountains of the Antarctic Peninsula and Ronge Island, we will find a large colony of Gentoo penguins and breeding pairs of Brown skuas. If we land on Orne Island we can observe Chinstrap penguins and possibly Weddell and Crabeater seals. In Neko Harbour we will have the opportunity to set foot on the Antarctic Continent in a magnificent landscape of huge glacier and enjoy the landscape during zodiac cruises.

When sailing to Paradise Bay, with its myriad icebergs and deep cut fjords, we will have the opportunity for zodiac cruising between the icebergs in the inner parts of the bay. In this area we have good chances to see Humpback whales and Minke whales.

Sailing north through Neumayer Channel, we hope to visit the former British research station and post office, now living museum, Port Lockroy on Goudier Island. Close to Port Lockroy we may also offer a landing on Jougla Point with Gentoo Penguins and Blue-eyed Shags.

We sail through the spectacular Lemaire Channel to Pléneau Island and Petermann Island where we can find Adelie penguins and Blue-eyed shags. In this area, there are good chances to encounter Humpback whales, Minke whales and Fin whales. Further south we may visit the Ukrainian Vernadsky Station, where we will receive a warm welcome from the station crew.  Sailing north through Gerlache Strait we arrive at the Melchior Islands with a very beautiful landscape with icebergs, where we may encounter Leopard seals, Crabeater seals and whales.

Days 8 - 9 At sea - On our way north we are again followed by a great selection of seabirds while crossing the Drake Passage.

Day 10 Ushuaia - We arrive in the morning in Ushuaia and disembark.
