Why you'll love this trip

  • Not only does this voyage spend time discovering the Antarctic Peninsula, you will also visit the southerly island clusters of South Georgia and Falklands, getting an overall perspective on the region.

  • Listen to the songs and stories of Paul Kelly while cruising to the Great White Continent. His music enjoys worldwide acclaim and icon status in Australia and beyond, and you’ll have the chance to be entertained on board.

  • During your days at sea, enjoy a series of lectures and workshops presented by a leading panel of experts in marine biology, glaciology and Antarctic history, further enhancing your voyage.

  • Consider seeing the Antarctic Peninsula on unforgettable optional adventures, including kayaking and camping experiences in some remote regions of the continent.

  • Appreciate the well-equipped Ocean Endeavour with multiple dining, bar and lounge areas and wellness facilities, as well as a favourable ratio of one expedition crew member to every eight passengers.

Is this trip right for you?

  • Our ice-strengthened ships are big and sturdy, but the Antarctic waters can still be unpredictable and rough. Some people may experience seasickness, especially through the Drake Passage and other open water crossings. There is a doctor on board should you need further assistance.

  • Weather is extreme in the world’s southernmost continent. We’ll provide you with the waterproof boots and an expedition parka, but you should be prepared with lots of layers. Please see the 'Packing' section of the Essential Trip Information for details.

  • Depending on the weather, you’ll be zipping around in a Zodiac boat quite regularly to explore the area and search for wildlife. It can get very cold and wet on the Zodiac and sturdy sea legs are needed for wet and dry landings from the boat.

  • People with reduced mobility may have difficulty participating in all included activities. On land, you’ll be walking over steep terrain, snow and other uneven surfaces. The Ocean Endeavour has a lift, but you’ll need to take the stairs to get to the gangway and some other parts of the ship that the lift does not provide access to.

  • The weather plays a pivotal part in this adventure, and although there’s an itinerary in place, there are no guarantees that you’ll be able to do everything that is planned for. A level of flexibility and openness to embracing the unexpected are important in expedition travel, especially in such a remote area. We may also be confined to the ship during rough weather.

The Ocean Endeavour is a far cry from the expedition vessels of old and, just quietly, we're tipping it’s the place be in the 2021 Antarctic season.
