These journeys take us further south than any of our other voyages, as we aim to reach well below the Antarctic Circle into the realm of the Snow Petrel and sprawling rookeries of Adélie Penguins. Along the way, we will explore the heavily glaciated coastline of the Antarctic Peninsula and its many nooks and archipelagos. We will seek to transit the Lemaire Channel and through the Gerlache Straight, where Zodiac trips and sea kayaking will give us unparalleled access to the shallows and narrow channels that crisscross its islands. There will be ample opportunities to observe a host of seabirds and marine mammals from the observation deck, and we will encounter penguins, skuas, and loafing seals while exploring seabird colonies on foot.

We will visit historic sites and scientific research outposts: some active, and others abandoned and remarkably well-preserved over the decades by the harsh Antarctic climate. The pristine and remote landscape south of the circle truly is Antarctica’s “Last Frontier!”
