DESTINATION - ANTARCTICA
Immerse Yourself in a Breathtaking Adventure
The Antarctica Peninsula is one of the most spectacular destinations yet, equally challenging for an expedition yacht to navigate. Exploring legends such as Cook, James Clark Ross, Scott, Shackleton, Palmer, Charcot, and Gerlache have traversed this polar magnificence since 1772. Our team, with extensive knowledge of these areas, protocols and laws, will expertly guide your journey through the polar convergence and into the Antarctic Treaty Zone.
Icebergs, wildlife and the natural beauty of the Antarctic Continent will be sure to amaze, with explorations into an active volcano caldera and a polar plunge into thermally heated waters creating an unparalleled sailing experience for you and your guests.
Ways to get there:
Via sail – From Cape Horn across the infamous Drakes Passage (a few days)
Via plane - Fly from Punta Arenas, Chile to the South Shetlands (four hours)
Ideal months to explore:
December - February
If you would like to decrease your ‘commute’ time south by days to avoid crossing Drakes Passage and join your yacht in the South Shetlands, you can fly in. Remember however, the Southern Ocean weather does not always comply and flying windows can require waiting in Punta Arenas or King George Island for up to four days.
