Highlights

  • Be awestruck by the array of wildlife that play and hunt in the Antarctic Sound.
  • With favorable conditions, we hope to experience the incredible sea ice and enormous icebergs in the Weddell Sea.
  • Learn about the incredible fossil-rich volcanic islands from our onboard palaeontologist.

Famed for its enormous icebergs, year-round sea ice, fascinating fossils and the pivotal role it played in Shackleton’s Endurance expedition, the Weddell Sea offers unsurpassed opportunities for exploration. Embark on a true Antarctic expedition as we not only explore the west Antarctic Peninsula, but also attempt to venture east towards the icy perimeter of the Weddell Sea, often guarded by impenetrable pack ice and home to awe-inspiring tabular icebergs that we hope to see.
