Antarctica Cruising

Cruising in Antarctica is extremely popular and with more luxury small ships offering Antarctica in their itineraries it is a very busy market. Kerry and Mandy recently attended a presentation by Ponant whose popular expedition itineraries to Antarctica are almost full for the 2016/17 season. This would be the case for most of the companies that cruise to Antarctica.

Those of us who prefer to travel in comfort are able to enjoy luxury the small ships offer. These ships easily change from being in cruise mode to being in expedition mode, offering exceptional guides who are very knowledgeable about this remote part of the world. Zodiacs are on-board for transportation closer to the action, which is closer than most of the larger ships are able to reach. With some itineraries starting at 21 days you really want to make sure you choose the right company. That is where our team are able to help. We have a strong relationship with the cruise company representatives and we are kept up to date with what's on offer and itineraries that are available.  

Our recommendation would be to to start planning now if not for the 2016/17 season then the next. 
Contact us and register your interest and let us design a journey for you to this remarkable place for that once in a lifetime experience,
