From Carcass Island to Sea Lion Island, the throng of birdlife is extraordinary. Penguins are particularly well represented with king penguins, gentoos, rockhoppers, macaroni and Magellan penguins breeding annually upon the Falklands’ shores.
Furthermore, a voyage into the deep waters of outlying islands will occasionally reward marine enthusiasts with sightings of bull elephant seals and southern right whale encounters. We have been specialising in expeditionary voyages to the Southern Ocean for over ten years and offer a number of cruises to South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, often in combination with Antarctica, which must rank as one of the world’s great sea voyages. We also have a South Georgia only voyage, focused on spending extended time exploring this little visited island for wildlife enthusiasts and those who want to return for longer.
Remote and challenging to reach, the islands offer astonishing wildlife, a rich history, and staggering king penguin colonies. This is nature’s kingdom where the husky cry of the sea lion and the quizzical gaze of the rockhopper are reminders of nature’s supremacy.
