    1 Sunday, December 19, 2021 Ushuaia, Argentina Embark 7:00 PM
    View of Ushuaia, Argentina

    Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city, is located on the Beagle Channel, where soaring mountains, ice-blue glaciers, and an historic lighthouse create an ideal backdrop. The capital of the Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego, it was first settled by British missionaries. During the first half of the 20th C the major building of the city was a prison, built by the Argentinian government for repeat offenders and serious criminals, as the subpolar oceanic climate made escape difficult. Today the Old Prison is a National Historical Monument housing the Museo Maritimo, where visitors can explore the history of the Argentine Navy. Read more about Ushuaia, Argentina

    View of New Island, Falkland Islands (Malvinas)

    New Island is one of the southwesterly island of the Falklands, and the most remote of all the inhabited islands in the archipelago. The landscape of New Island is much like that of parts of Scotland. The hilly island is wind-swept and covered with high brown grass and peat bogs. It has become a popular destination for small expedition ships, so that passengers can enjoy the stunning scenery, bird-watching, as well as offshore sightings of dolphins, penguins, sea lions and fur seals.

    Port Stanley is the capital and only town in the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas). It is located on the isle of East Falkland, on a north-facing slope, south of Stanley Harbour, in one of the wettest parts of the islands. It is very easy to see most of the islands’ worthwhile sites on a short walking tour. The tourist station at the pier provides a town map of the Stanley Harbour Maritime History Trail.

    15 Sunday, January 2, 2022 Drake Passage, Antarctica 12:00 AM 12:00 AM
    View of Drake Passage, Antarctica

    Drake Passage is the body of water between the southern tip of South America at Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. Named after the sixteenth century English explorer Sir Francis Drake, although he never actually sailed the passage, it connects the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and is the shortest crossing from Antarctica to the rest of the world’s land, about 860 km. Conditions can change instantly in the Drake Passage, owing to strong winds, large waves, strong currents, and icebergs: hence notorious as ‘sailors’ graveyard.’ Until the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 large ships had to sail this passage. Yet today most commercial shipping uses the open-ocean Drake Passage. Read more about Drake Passage, Antarctica
