Plan to stay two overnights at anchor in order to implement two camp nights and two full activity days. Visit the British research station and post office Port Lockroy on Goudier Island. Close to Port Lockroy possibly land on Jougla Point with Gentoo Penguins and Imperial Shags. Sail through the spectacular Lemaire Channel to Pleneau and Petermann Island where you can find Adelie Penguins and Blue-eyed Shags. In this area there are good chances to encounter Humpback Whales, Minke Whales and Fin Whales. Your second Basecamp night will be erected near the continent, choose a camp site which is suitable and close to next days activity. The mountaineers hope to reach the summit of Mt Demaria (640 m) at Waddington Bay. A visit to one of the scientific stations in Antarctica will give you an insight about the life of modern Antarcticans working on the White Continent. Further south you may have time to visit the Ukrainian Vernadsky Station, where you will receive a warm welcome from the station crew.
When sailing to Paradise Bay, with its myriad icebergs and deep cut fjords, have the opportunity for zodiac cruising and kayaking between the icebergs in the inner parts of the fjords. In this area there are good chances to see Humpback Whales and Minke Whales. Hikers, mountaineers and photographers will spend time ashore.
In afternoon at Neko Harbour have the opportunity to set foot on the Antarctic Continent in a magnificent landscape of huge glacier and enjoy the landscape during zodiac cruises, hikes and kayak excursions. A small group of mountaineers may climb up on higher grounds of the glacier. Spend the night at Neko or near Paradise Bay with a camp erected ashore. Leave Neko Harbour in the early morning after breaking your last camp. Sail via Melchior Islands towards the open sea of the Drake Passage. Again have a chance of seeing many seabirds.
