Itinerary Notes

Flights scheduled and Antarctic itinerary may vary depending on weather conditions. At the end of the program, a free transfer to the city will be available at the airport for all passengers staying overnight.

Arrival & Departure

When considering flights, plan to arrive Punta Arenas at any time before 3:00pm. A pre-cruise hotel overnight is included on Day 1. Although in theory it is possible to depart Punta Arenas on evening flights, it is not recommended because the Antarctica flights are so variable and delays could compromise your schedule. We strongly recommend travelers stay one more night. Get a free flight quote.

Kayaking is available on all departures, except Antarctica Express, at $895 per person (minimum age 16). Group experience limited to a maximum of 10 participants on Ocean Nova and 16 participants on Sea Explorer. Snowshoeing is available on selected departures at $195 per person. A maximum of 12 participants. To take part in the kayaking program you must have previous kayaking experience.

Trip Reviews

OVERALL: 5 stars ACCOMMODATIONS: 4 stars MEALS: 4 stars

Overall Trip Review

We most enjoyed flying over the Drake Passage - left more time to enjoy Antarctica. Loved the colours of the ice, the penguins (not the smell!!), seals, whales and birds. We chose a small vessel with only 68 passengers. We chose the kayaking option, which was brilliant. It was an amazing experience, and I really liked being on a smaller vessel.

Accommodations Review

Comfortable 3 person cabin. Very clean.

Meals Review

Buffet style breakfast, lunch. Dinner served, 3 choices.

Crew & Guides Review

All staff on the boat were friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. All the other passengers were interesting and polite. Great fun!

AdventureSmith Explorations Review

Good advice was well presented. Any questions were answered promptly.

Our Antarctic trip was all we expected and more; lots of adventure and fun! We were very pleased with the high quality staff on board the Ocean Nova. All meals were great.  We like acitve vactions, and this was not a ‘lay on the beach’ trip. Some people seemed surprised at the level of fitness required to really go twice a day and see all we saw, however we loved it.  We chose the Air Cruise because we have been waiting for a trip to emerge that did not involve sailing across the Drake Passage due to sea sickness and the time it requires. Our advice to other travelers is, it will possibly be one of the most unique places you will ever visit and it is definitely worth the time and expense.
