As the temperatures drop, the adventure rises! No matter which cruise you choose, the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand will not disappoint. Your expedition will take you in the footsteps of explorers like Scott & Shackleton, as you witness some of the most dynamic wildlife on the planet. Considered by some to be the "Galapagos of the Southern Ocean" for its wealth of biodiversity, your cruise will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Southern Islands, like Auckland Islands, the Snares, Campbell Island, and the Antipodes Islands. Each of these destinations hosts fascinating bird species, such as the Royal penguin, endemic parakeet species, and a variety of other birds, and also native mammals, like elephant and fur seals and sea lions. This also serves as the doorway to the frigid Antarctic.
