Antarctica & The Weddell Sea

2023 Buenos Aires > Buenos Aires

In Search of the Elusive Emperor Penguin

Discover Antarctica’s vast tabular icebergs, immense penguin colonies and historic tales.

Admired by all, visited by few. This limited-edition voyage will take you to the depths of the most extraordinary continent in the world. As Scenic Eclipse threads its way through the ice choked Weddell Sea, marvel at waters deemed to be the clearest on earth. Akin to the clarity of distilled water, an abundance of wildlife can be witnessed. Pods of whales breach, and pristine snow petrels soar above. At landfall, the sight of Adélie penguins, and lazing seal colonies will welcome you. Embrace the chance to see an Emperor penguin with an optional helicopter excursion to Snow Hill Island, the most northern place in Antarctica where they breed. Historically significant, let the Discovery Team share Antarctica’s inspiring tales of polar survival, and take you to site where Earnest Shackleton’s ship Endurance became trapped in ice. Every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime exploration will captivate the explorer within.
