Experience the wildlife of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula

Sailing towards Antarctica there is a fall in temperature as we cross the Antarctic Convergence. You’ll see seabirds, whales, and other species that are attracted by the nutrient-rich waters.

Enjoy opportunities to see albatross, several species of penguins, as well as elephant seals, whales, and dolphins!
