Antarctic & Sub-Antarctic Cruising
The last-frontier ice desert of Antarctica attracts 45,000 visitors a year to view its windswept, treeless, frozen wasteland. Wildlife on show includes penguins, seals, birds, dolphins and orcas. Since most of the wildlife in Antarctica is found on the ice-free narrow ridges of coastline around the islands and mainland, cruise passengers don't have to miss out on any of the interesting sea, land or air creatures of this exciting continent.

Antarctic visits generally concentrate on ice-free coastal zones over the five month period from November to March. Most vessels sail to the Antarctic Peninsula region although some itineraries include South Georgia and the Falkland Islands.

Ushuaia

Yachts and ships with less than 200 passengers (like Lindblad and Silver Explorer) often base themselves in one area for several days and generally land on the continent with a duration lasting approximately 1 - 3 hours. There can be between 1-3 landings per day using inflatable crafts or helicopters to transfer visitors.

Ships with up to 500 passengers typically sail the waters with or without landing and cruise ships carrying more than 500 passengers are no longer operational as of 2009 due to concerns of oil or fuel spills. These larger vessels like HAL Zaandam and Celebrity Infinity tend to visit the Sub-Antarctic region instead, or do a cruise through the area. As they do not run tenders or work with local operators they are unable to offer passengers the ability to set foot on the Antarctic Peninsula.

Antarctica

All travel ashore is by inflatable Zodiacs. Only 100 passengers per ship are allowed onshore at any given time, so guests on larger vessels will view the icescape from their ship. Watch in awe as icebergs are calved from the continental ice shelf, then race away in your Zodiac to avoid the wash.

The most important thing when choosing your Antarctic Cruise is to decide whether stepping foot on Antarctica is the priority, or whether seeing the entire region (and saving money) is the right choice for you. There are many places to experience the extraordinary flora and fauna in the surrounds, so check the port descriptions and speak with your consultant to choose the right cruise for your needs.

Antarctic Peninsular
The Antarctic Peninsula is the northernmost part of the mainland of Antarctica, the top one third actually lying north of the Antarctic Circle. It includes numerous islands and connecting ice sheets that reach to within 1600 km of the southernmost tips of Chile and Argentina. Due to its relatively mild climate and the early effects of climate change in the area, it has the highest concentration of research stations on the continent. Classic Antarctic scenery, dazzling in its beauty, is enhanced by the numerous high mountains, believed to be a continuation of the Andes, which reach to 2800m.

View the wonders of nature

Elephant Island, Sub-Antarctica
Elephant Island is an ice-covered, mountainous island off the coast of Antarctica in the outer reaches of the South Shetland Islands in the Southern Ocean. Elephant Island's name can be attributed to both its elephant head-like appearance as well as the sighting of elephant seals on its shores. While the island doesn't support any significant flora or native fauna, migratory Gentoo penguins and seals may be found on its shores, and Chinstrap penguins nest there in season. Travellers who are eager to experience nature in its most raw state, and see parts of the planet completely unaffected by humans, will definitely not be disappointed.

The island is best known for the desolate refuge and eventual rescue of Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 28 in 1916, following the loss of their ship Endurance in Weddell Sea ice. The astonishing story of their determination - where 22 of Shackleton's crew spent four long, dark Antarctic winter months awaiting rescue - and amazing survival makes it a wonderful cruise destination for adventurous travellers.

Shackleton's home in 1916

South Georgia, Sub-Antarctica
South Georgia Island is a sub-Antarctic island administered by the United Kingdom as part of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. It is the home to Shackleton's final resting place. Its remote location and lack of access makes it a rare destination for tourists, however this has changed in recent years. The seas around South Georgia have a high level of biodiversity. Subsequently in February 2012, the territory's government created the world's largest protected area, the South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands Marine Protection Area.
