The vast majority of cruises to Antarctica visit the Antarctica Peninsula, as it is the most accessible point in Antarctica (and arguably the most picturesque) reached from Patagonia at the southern tip of South America via either Ushuaia, Argentina or Punta Arenas, Chile. Cruises frequently visit the South Shetland Islands, especially King George, location of the airport that receives travelers flying from Chile to begin their Antarctic cruise. The majority of cruises traverse the western side of the Peninsula, except cruises to the Weddell Sea. Highlights of cruises on the western side include Deception Island, Neko HarborThe Lemaire ChannelPort Lockroy, and Paradise Bay. Expect massive icebergs, jagged mountain peaks, glaciers crashing into the sea, amazing wildlife like penguins, seals, whales & much.more.

  Best Antarctica Peninsula Cruise Lines for 2022-2023
  • Ponant - offers 47 Antarctic Peninsula cruises, with grandiose decor ranging from glaciers, ice floes, tabletop icebergs, mountain peaks that plunge directly into the sea, research stations, and enchanting bays discovered daily via carefully selected Zodiac® excursions, based on prevailing ice conditions. Their newest fleet member, Le Commandant Charcot, is the world's first hybrid-electric polar expedition ship powered by liquefied natural gas.
  • Quark Expeditions - has 12 Antarctica Peninsula expeditions to view icebergs of every form and size in the peninsula's bays, fjords, and inlets, as well as the opportunity to witness minke and humpback whales at close range. The Ultramarine, the company's newest addition to its fleet, features two twin-engine helicopters, twenty quick-launch Zodiacs, luxurious staterooms, wellness amenities, and several outside wildlife viewing areas.
  • Silversea Cruises - provides an extensive Antarctica cruise collection that features mostly 10-day excursions of the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands and shorter sailings of just 5, 6, or 9 days as part of the Antarctica Bridge fly-cruise program. The Antarctic Peninsula, South Shetland Islands, Falkland Islands, Elephant Island, and South Georgia are included in longer cruises. Silver Cloud and Silver Wind guests will now fly into Santiago, Chile, for an overnight hotel stay before flying to Punta Arenas the following day to board the ship. Guests embarking on Silver Explorer will do so in Puerto Williams except for travelers aboard Silversea's Antarctica Bridge, the world's first ultra-luxury fly-cruise to Antarctica, who will fly directly from Punta Arenas to King George Island.
  • Lindblad Expeditions - discover the Antarctic Peninsula over 19 voyages, where unending white mountains roll to the horizon, and massive glaciers churn icebergs into the sea. While traveling aboard the state-of-the-art National Geographic Explorer, National Geographic Resolution, or National Geographic Endurance, experience the Antarctic Peninsula up close by zipping around enormous tabular icebergs by Zodiac or kayak and walking along beaches teeming with penguins, seals, slabs, and humpback and orca whales breaching the surface of the lake.
  • Aurora Expeditions - In addition to the Ulstein X-BOW®, two of its new expedition ships, Sylvia Earle and Greg Mortimer, have large viewing platforms that bring you closer to the Antarctic Peninsula's magnificent maze of sheltered channels and inlets, where modern scientific stations and remnants of early explorers and the whaling industry are scattered among penguin rookeries and solitude.
