Emperor Penguin’s, incl. Helicopter
Embark on a one of a kind Antarctic expedition by sea and air in quest of the majestic Emperor penguins. Departing from Ushuaia your Antarctica cruise crosses the Drake Passage and sails into the Weddell Sea. This is the domain of breathtaking tabular icebergs and vast expanses of sheet ice, stark white presented against every hue of blue. In this remote area, exploration in search of the Emperor Penguins is by helicopter and they are often spotted in great numbers as well as Adelie & Gentoo penguins. The scenery in this remote part of Antarctica is breathtaking - lava flows, stunning glaciers and immense mountains.
Trips to shore by Zodiac are also frequent on this Antarctic cruise, all the while guided by our expert crew who can educate you on all areas of this fascinating environment. Wildlife in this region is abundant and there are opportunities to photograph and get up close to several species of penguin, seals, humpback whales, albatrosses and many species of sea bird who weave in the wake of our cruise ship. As our Antarctic cruise returns to Ushuaia you will be left with a lifetime of memories of this remarkable continent and it's unique inhabitants.
