As we sail south, important briefings on environmental regulations and expedition safety are held, and you won’t want to miss our experts as they begin their informative and entertaining talks about the wildlife, history, and geology of the area.
Things really start to ramp up as there is plenty of wildlife identifying to do as we officially enter Antarctic waters. Hopping into our inflatable Zodiac boats, we’ll spend as much time as possible exploring any number of picturesque bays and channels. Be prepared to marvel up close at nature’s glory as we set course through icy seas fringed by colossal icebergs and touch ground on the Antarctic Peninsula.

South Georgia is often referred to as the ‘Serengeti of the Southern Ocean’ and it’s easy to see why as this island home to tens of millions of breeding penguins, seals, and seabirds. Magnificent mountain scenery, glaciers galore, a rich historical tapestry, and an incredible array of wildlife will astound you as we travel up South Georgia's leeward coast. We’ll also visit historic Grytviken whaling station, plus the tiny graveyard where the great Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton is buried.
Explore some of the westernmost settled outposts in the Falklands, where you can take in the beautiful countryside and look for black browed albatross or Rockhopper, King, and Magellanic penguin rookeries.
Stanley is a lively hub of activity nestled in a sheltered harbor. Head out on foot to explore the museum, shops and services centered on the port, or look for sea lions, dolphins, and bird life along the shores. Later that day, schedule permitting, we will attend ‘Falkstock’ a festival founded by Polar Latitudes, now in its 9th year. The festival features live music and entertainment and is a benefit for a local charitable organization.
We enjoy our final excursion together before we leave this magical place and make our way north, once again heading across the famed Drake Passage. We have one last hurrah as we celebrate the conclusion of our expedition with a special slideshow and a final meal together.
