Kakadu & Beyond

Not one day was disappointing - It wall all wonderful! The guides were excellent...never losing their patience or sense of humour - an extraordinary feat with such a diverse group of people. Their local knowledge was good and well delivered. Thank you.

Antarctic Peninsula Christmas Voyage

When the mountains reach the sea along the Antarctic Peninsula they discharge huge glaciers into the narrow fjords and sheltered bays. This hauntingly beautiful part of Antarctica provides a haven for the greatest concentration of wildlife on the continent. We have scheduled five days to explore the deep bays and fjords of the western Antarctic Peninsula. With regular landings on our zodiacs, we walk among the multitude of penguin rookeries and seal colonies in the vicinity of Deception Island, Gerlache Strait, Paradise Bay and the Lemaire Channel. There are also ample opportunities to identify the abundant variety of seabirds and sight Humpback and Minke Whales as they surface close to our boat. Our time onshore will also include visits to scientific stations and historic sites.
