• Experience the seldom-seen Antarctic undersea, too––through the efforts of our undersea specialist
• Benefit from our 175 collective years of expedition experience to see and do all you came for and more

Days 1 & 2 — Home/Fly to Buenos Aires, Argentina

Day 3 — Buenos Aires/Ushuaia, Argentina/Embark Ship

Fly by private charter to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. Embark ship.

Day 4 — At Sea

While crossing the legendary Drake Passage, spot albatross and other seabirds that glide alongside the ship.

Days 5 to 10 — Antarctica

With long hours of daylight at this time of year, we have ample opportunity to explore the Antarctic Peninsula and the surrounding islands. In keeping with the nature of an expedition, the schedule is flexible so that we can take advantage of the unexpected—watching whales at play off the bow, taking an after-dinner Zodiac cruise, or heading out on an unplanned excursion. We anticipate offering opportunities each day to hike, kayak among the ice floes, and experience close encounters with wildlife. You may have the thrill of watching our powerful ship crunch through the pack ice, or step ashore to thousands of Adélie and gentoo penguins. You’ll learn how climate change affects the penguin populations, and how best to capture images of penguins from a National Geographic photographer. Back aboard, our undersea specialist may present video from that day’s dive or show rare images taken up to 1,000 feet below the surface using our ROV. Our expert staff will craft an expedition where you will learn, see, and experience more.

Days 11 & 12 — At Sea

Enjoy the ship’s amenities as the coast of Antarctica disappears from view. Round the southernmost tip of South America, and see the meeting of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Celebrate your voyage at a farewell dinner on board.

Days 13 & 14 — Ushuaia/Disembark/Buenos Aires/Home

Disembark in Ushuaia. Fly by charter to Buenos Aires and connect with your overnight flight home (international flight not included).

Flexibility is a hallmark of our expeditions, and often the day-by-day itinerary will change as we take advantage of rare wildlife sightings or photographers linger ashore through the golden hour of light. Extraordinary adventure is a guarantee.
