For many expedition cruises of Antarctica, the Antarctic Sound will be your first sight of the impressive White Continent. After navigating the frigid waters of the Southern Ocean, teeming with marine life, and the seabirds above, the Antarctic Sound will welcome you to the tip of the continent - the Antarctic Peninsula. Early explorers have been shipwrecked here, and you will learn of their stories, the rescues that were made, and the discoveries that they forged in the 19th century when they were first visiting this mysterious land. As you take zodiac rides and hike across the glaciers, you'll add your own adventures and stories to the mix of Antarctica's brief but bold human history.
