Antarctica Cruises

The immense ice-shrouded wilderness of Antarctica is a winter wonderland which defies our senses and is perfect for expeditionary cruising

Its incomparable scenery, exotic cast of antarctic wildlife and rich history beckon those with an appetite for adventure. We offer a selection of cruises to Antarctica from classic Antarctic Peninsula cruises and specialist penguin cruises to extended Antarctica cruises to the Ross Sea.

If you think cruising is only about huge ships docking in small ports and disgorging thousands of passengers then think again. Expeditionary voyages are everything traditional cruises are not:

  • Small boats – we offer a comprehensive range of smaller sized boats, accommodating between 7-122 passengers providing a very intimate, personalised experience.
  • Active – daily landings by zodiac allow for complete immersion in the continent. Plenty of time is set aside for things like watching penguins in their rookery and treks to spectacular viewpoints. The extended daylight hours are put to full use to ensure your time is fully maximised when in Antarctica.
  • Educational – all landings are accompanied by expeditonary staff whom are experts in their field. In the evenings, lectures are given on a range of subjects from wildlife and conservation to photography, polar history and exploration .
  • Adventure – try snowshoeing, ski touring or embark on an overnight kayaking expedition and camp overnight on the Antarctic peninsula. For the ultimate immersion, try an Antarctic plunge or scuba diving in Antarctica.
