Highlights

  • Hone your ice and wildlife photography skills.
  • Observe extraordinary wildlife including migrating whales and moulting penguins.
  • Sail the Chilean Fjords, keeping watch for the many seabirds and marine wildlife including dolphins, sea lions and whales preparing to return to warmer climates for the winter.

As Antarctica laps up the last of the summer sun and the landscape bathes in dappled light, its inhabitants show no signs of slowing down. Sail across the famed Drake Passage to and from Antarctica, admiring spectacular seabirds and approaching the ice as the explorers of old did – by sea. With one eye on the sky, watching for skuas, terns or cormorant chicks, you will also need one eye on the water’s surface. This time of year is when humpback whales are peaking in numbers and when you may see penguin chicks heading out for their first swim.
