Spirit of Antarctica

A visit to the Antarctic Peninsula offers you a unique insight into a world of haunting beauty, along with unsurpassed wildlife viewing opportunities. This cruise includes regular landings on zodiacs where 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. Accompanied by naturalist guide we explore the many sheltered bays and fjords of the region, whilst our time at sea is spent looking for whales, identifying numerous sea-birds and participating in informative lectures. Time permitting we hope to include visits to scientific stations and historical sites which brings an understanding of the adventurous nature of the early Antarctic explorers.
