Kayak

Sea Kayaking in Antarctica offers you the opportunity to experience the ice, wildlife and sea life up close and personal in an intimate setting.  While previous experience and basic kayaking skills are required, typically everything needed for your kayaking adventure is provided.  Kayaking is done in small groups, typically led by a qualified Kayak guide with cold water experience.  Kayak types and kayaking experience requirements do vary by ship, so please ask our staff about the different offerings.
