Polar Regions Antarctica Cruise

Antarctic Latitudes

The 12- or 13-day Antarctic Latitudes voyage sails round-trip from Ushuaia. From the Beagle Channel to the Drake Passage, embark as early explorers did, looking for icebergs, seabirds and whales along the way to the South Shetland Islands. Explore the Antarctic Peninsula for multiple days, stopping at penguin rookeries, seal wallows and whale feeding areas, as well as sites of historic and scientific interest. Antarctica is far too special to simply pass through and check off a list. Voyaging to Antarctica with a captain and expedition team that has decades of Antarctic exploration under their belts makes this not just a cruise, but a voyage. 

Engage in Antarctica with the Citizen Science program, a way to harness the power of thousands of travelers around the world to observe, record and report on natural phenomena. Participate in a variety of activities that support important research projects in five major disciplines: Oceanography, Glaciology, Ornithology, Marine Biology and Meteorology. The data collected contributes to a better understanding of climate change and how it’s affecting the Antarctic continent. Participate or simply observe, but no matter what, feel the buzz of fun, interactive and informative activities that make this voyage unforgettable.

In addition to the main 13-day itinerary, there is also a shorter 12-day Adventures in Antarctica route that spends one less day in the South Shetland Islands.

The unique 149-guest Seaventure operates these itineraries. Experience Antarctica’s remote and ice-laden environment in a novel way with Seaventure’s custom-built citizen science lab, unique family cabins and heated saltwater pool, sauna and complimentary beverages.
