Discover Antarctica - On-Board Ocean Atlantic
Visiting Antarctica is definitely a trip of a life time. Witness awe inspiring scenes from mother nature, the last white continent will take your breath away. Snow capped mountain ranges, impressive icebergs, magnificent glaciers, not to mention the abundant wildlife.
This cruise departs from Ushuaia, also called "the end of the world" - a town of rugged beauty in the southernmost part of the American continents. Sail away across the infamous Drake passage and the adventure begins, as humpback whales, dolphins and majestic albatross can be spotted from the boat. Making land on the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula the opportunities for viewing incredible fauna like fur seals, elephant seals, orca, vast penguin colonies and more continues. A program of lectures aboard the ship galvanizes the Antarctic experience as does the chance to visit an active research station. Several days are spent cruising comfortably through the sublime scenery before returning to Ushuaia.
Join the 21st February 2020 departure for a once-in-a lifetime journey to Antarctica with one of Australia’s greats, Kurt Fearnley AO, as our special guest. Three times Paralympic gold medalist and the holder of a plethora of other international medals and achievements.
