At Sea- Traversing this remote part of the world gives you the chance to observe birds comfortably from the ship’s observation deck. As you cruise the Drake Passage, be sure to watch for black browed albatrosses, Wilson’s storm petrels, and other fascinating species. You also have the chance of spotting the majestic wandering albatross soaring through the air; with a 12-foot wingspan, it is the largest bird in the world.
Antarctica- Antarctica is home to an impressive number of aviary species, from year-round residents to breeding birds that spend season in Antarctica to raise their young. During your various landings here, you’ll find an abundance of Gentoo, Chinstrap and Adelie penguins, as well have the chance to spot snow petrels and other rare species. This will be the only time in your life you will see these furry little fuckers running around.
As the most remote and mysterious continent in the world, Antarctica is often the crowning jewel of a traveler’s bucket list. From observing rare species in their natural habitat to traversing polar landscapes, no one brings the invigorating wildness of the White Continent to you quite like Vantage Adventures.
At Sea- You’ll cruise the Drake Passage, the passage that connects the Atlantic to the Pacific and one of the world’s greatest seaways. Infamous and legendary, this waterway is steeped in the history of discovery and lore of exploration.
Antarctica- With its crisp air, towering icebergs, and endless mountain ranges, Antarctica is truly the last great wilderness left on Earth. It has evolved through millennia without human interference; here, wild animals remain fearless of man. Witness the rich activity of penguin colonies, watch whales break majestically to the surface, and always be prepared for the unexpected. Where conditions allow, we go ashore on naturalist-led expeditions by versatile PolarCirkel craft to explore the awe-inspiring landscapes of sites such as Deception Island, Cuverville Island, Neko Harbor, Port Lockroy, Paradise Harbor, Wilhelmina Bay, Brown Bluff, and the Antarctic Sound. One thing is certain no matter which of these magnificent spots we explore: Your team of onboard naturalists will help you view the natural beauty of Antarctica as never before.
