This trip offered by our partner Rockjumper is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and cannot come more highly recommended! Come explore stark, magnificent Antarctica and its vast colonies of majestic penguins, brash skuas, giant petrels, weird sheathbills, somnolent seals, and feeding whales.
Our voyage traverses some of the most interesting areas in the Southern Ocean; notably the Falkland and South Georgia Islands, both of which are renowned as among the richest of all Subantarctic islands. South Georgia's rugged beauty is worthy of Antarctica itself, while the Falkland Islands are better known as the battlegrounds for the 1982 Anglo-Argentine War. Several days are spent at sea, cruising from one island group to the next until we find ourselves at the very tip of the icy continent itself. These crossings provide thrilling pelagic birding, with huge numbers of albatrosses, petrels, prions, skuas, and other seabirds making a daily appearance. Cetaceans are also regular, ranging from the largest whales to the striking Hourglass and Commerson's Dolphins.
Antarctica is surely the ultimate destination!
Our partner, Rockjumper, has upgraded our ship to the extremely comfortable RCGS Resolute. Although we were sold out before, the Resolute has a bit more space than our original vessel, so a few additional cabins are now available.
Prices start at $14,300 pp/do, depending on cabin selection.
In partnership with Rockjumper Birding and the American Birding Association (ABA).
