We have been specialising in expeditionary cruises to the Southern Ocean for over 15 years and offer a selection of voyages in the Weddell Sea. Travel aboard small expeditionary boats or ice-strengthened ships to some of the most challenging regions on Earth.
First discovered by James Weddell in 1823, the Weddell Sea is home to vast tabular icebergs, pack ice, a barren landscape, grand vistas and some of Antarctica’s greatest penguin rookeries. The south-western and southern borders of the sea are formed by the Larsen and the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelves which produce the huge tabular icebergs that are so abundant in the Weddell Sea.
Find huge tabular icebergs and pack ice in an area inaccessible for much of the year, where only a handful of ships venture each season. Home to emperor penguin colonies, including those at world-renowned Snow Hill, and synonymous with Shackleton, the Weddell Sea is unlike anywhere else on Earth.
