Journey to the Antarctic Circle
Cruise aboard a spacious and comfortable polar expedition vessel to cross a milestone few have ventured, the Antarctic Circle, latitude 66° 33’.
This Antarctica cruise departs from Ushuaia, setting course for the icy waters of Antarctica. Here you will be treated to incredible views of white mountains, deep blue icebergs that have been carved by the ocean and huge glaciers. The goal of this extended voyage is to follow in the wake of Captain Cook and cross the Antarctic Circle, home to the midnight sun, shifting ice, incredible ice formations and Weddell seals.
Plenty of zodiac trips will take you to visit penguin rookeries and seal colonies. You may also spot breaching whales and hunting leopard seals that patrol these waters. Take advantage of optional activities during your voyage including kayaking and snowshoeing.
Your Antarctica cruise ship, The Ocean Endeavour, is equipped for the best polar experience including optional forward-facing zodiacs for optimal photographic opportunities. The polar expedition cruise ship has been recently renovated and includes saunas, jacuzzi, gym, yoga classes, library and two restaurants. It also boasts one of the best guide to passenger ratio in Antarctica (1:8) and has dedicated single occupancy cabins. Cross the Antarctica Circle with us on the Ocean Endeavour!
