Polar Regions Antarctica Cruise

Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica

During this 19- to 22-day Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica expedition, follow in the footsteps of the great explorers to Antarctica. Along the way marvel at the magnificent flora and fauna that Darwin first documented on the islands of South Georgia and the Falklands. Pass through the Weddell Sea into the Antarctic Peninsula through spectacular channels and bays of icebergs, seals, penguins and more, and be one of the few to set foot on the continent of Antarctica! 

Enjoy shore-based walking opportunities, including the Shackleton walk. Zodiac cruises reveal at least six different penguin species. Take in Victorian-era charm at Port Stanley. Seek out Shackleton’s grave on South Georgia Island, which may also provide chances to see large wandering albatross sitting on eggs or nursing their chicks. Select departures also offer polar diving (added cost).

At Grytviken, see an abandoned whaling station, where king penguins now walk in the streets and elephant seals have taken residency. Fin whales may follow the ship on its way south to the Antarctic Peninsula. Possibilities exist to sail the Weddell Sea, Bransfield Strait, Gerlache Strait and Lemaire Channel, and the ship may set course for Elephant Island. Flexibility is key to making the most of any Antactica small ship cruise.

The main 19-day Falkland, South Georgia & Antarctica itinerary travels east from Ushuaia to the Falklands and South Georgia Islands, then turns south for the South Orkney Islands and three days on the Antarctic Peninsula. Finish the journey back to Ushuaia after crossing the famed Drake Passage aboard either the 108-passenger M/V Plancius, the 108-guest M/V Ortelius, the 170-guest M/V Hondius or the 170-guest M/V Janssonius.

Additionally, there is a 20-day alternative itinerary that spends one additional day exploring the Antarctic Peninsula, as well as a 22-day alternative itinerary that adds a day each in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and along the Peninsula. The 21-day alternative itinerary that begins in Puerto Madryn, Argentina. Whichever you choose, the Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica voyage is truly a trip of a lifetime.

South Georgia

Today arrive at the first activity site in South Georgia. Weather conditions on South Georgia can be challenging and will largely dictate the program. Over the next few days, possible sites to visit are each fascinating in their own way. At Prion Island, hope to witness large wandering albatross sitting on eggs or nursing their chicks (note: the island is closed to visitors during the early part of the breeding season from November 20-January 7). In Fortuna Bay, penguins and seals inhabit the beaches and guests may follow the final section of Shackleton’s route to the abandoned whaling village of Stromness. The route leads across the mountain pass beyond “Shackleton’s Waterfall.” The terrain is partly swampy and some small streams may have to be crossed along the way.

Salisbury Plain, St. Andrews Bay and Gold Harbour house the three largest king penguin colonies in South Georgia and are also home to a substantial number of Antarctic fur seals during the breeding season of December through January. At Grytviken, see an abandoned whaling station, where king penguins now walk in the streets and elephant seals have taken residency. Opportunities may exist to visit the South Georgia Museum as well as Shackleton’s grave.

Day 4
Falkland Islands

The Falkland (Malvinas) Islands offer an abundance of wildlife that is easily approachable, though caution is always advised. These islands are largely unknown gems, the site of a 1982 war between the UK and Argentina. Not only do various species of bird live here, but chances are great to see both Peale’s dolphins and Commerson’s dolphins in the surrounding waters.

During this segment of the voyage, possible visiting sites include the following:

Steeple Jason

Home to the world’s largest black-browed albatross colony (roughly 113,000), Steeple Jason is a wild and rarely visited island buffeted by wind and waves. Weather and swell conditions dictate the journey here.

Carcass Island

Despite its name, this island is pleasantly rodent-free and hence bounteous with birdlife. Anything from breeding Magellanic penguins and gentoos to numerous waders and passerine birds (including Cobb’s wrens and tussock-birds) live here.

Saunders Island

On Saunders Island it’s possible to see the black-browed albatross and its sometimes-clumsy landings, along with breeding imperial shags and rockhopper penguins. King penguins, Magellanic penguins, and gentoos are also found here.

Days 8 - 11
South Georgia

Today, arrive at the first South Georgia activity site. Please keep in mind that weather conditions in this area can be challenging and largely dictate the program. Sites visits may include the following:

Prion Island

This location is closed during the early part of the wandering albatross breeding season (November 20 – January 7). The previous summer’s wandering albatross chicks are almost ready to fledge, and adults are seeking out their old partners after a year and a half at sea.

Salisbury Plain, St. Andrews Bay, Gold Harbour

These sites not only house the three largest king penguin colonies in South Georgia, they’re also three of the world’s largest breeding beaches for southern elephant seals. Only during this time of year do they peak in their breeding cycle. Watch the four-ton bulls keep a constant vigil (and occasionally fight) over territories where dozens of females have just given birth or are about to deliver. It’s also possible to see a substantial number of Antarctic fur seals here during the breeding season (December – January).

Fortuna Bay

Near beaches inhabited by various penguins and seals, have the chance to follow the final leg of Shackleton’s route to the abandoned whaling village of Stromness. This path cuts across the mountain pass beyond Shackleton’s Waterfall. The terrain is partly swampy, so be prepared to cross a few small streams.

Grytviken

In this abandoned whaling station, king penguins walk the streets and elephant seals lie around like they own the place – because they basically do. Here is the South Georgia Museum as well as Shackleton’s grave.

Days 15 - 18
Antarctic Peninsula

If the ice conditions permit, sail into the Weddell Sea where colossal tabular icebergs herald your arrival to the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula. Paulet Island, with its large population of Adélie penguins, is a possible stop. Perhaps visit Brown Bluff, located in the ice-clogged Antarctic Sound, where here’s the chance to set foot on the Antarctic Continent itself.

If conditions aren’t favorable to enter the Weddell Sea from the east, the ship will set course for Elephant Island and head into the Bransfield Strait, between South Shetland Island and the Antarctic Peninsula and attempt to access the Antarctic Sound from the northwest.

The volcanic islands of the South Shetlands are windswept and often cloaked in mist, but they nonetheless offer many subtle pleasures. A wide variety of flora (mosses, lichens, flowering grasses) and fauna (gentoo penguins, chinstrap penguins, southern giant petrels) live here. Chinstrap penguins and Weddell seals often haul out onto the beach near Cámara Base, an Argentine scientific research station on Half Moon Island.

On Deception Island, the ship plunges through Neptune’s Bellows and into the flooded caldera. There are hot springs, an abandoned whaling station and thousands of cape petrels. A number of kelp gulls, brown skuas, south polar skuas and Antarctic terns can be spotted too. Wilson’s storm petrels and black-bellied storm petrels also nest in the ruins of the whaling station in Whalers Bay. As an alternative, you can take part in activities near Telefon Bay, further inside the caldera.

This extended voyage offers the chance to sail even farther down the icy coast of the western Antarctic Peninsula. In the Gerlache Strait are several opportunities for great landings to possibly set foot on the Antarctic Continent, surrounded by an epic landscape of alpine peaks and mammoth glaciers calving at sea level. Gentoo penguins, leopard seals, Weddell seals, humpback whales and minke whales are often seen here.

The breathtaking scenery continues in the southern Gerlache Strait, and if ice conditions allow, it’s possible to even reach Lemaire Channel. Conditions on the Drake Passage determine the exact time of departure.

Days 3 - 4
Falkland Islands

In the Falkland Islands (Malvinas), take in an abundance of tame wildlife, including possible sightings of Peale’s and Commerson’s dolphins. A hike along the shore of Carcass Island provides views of Magellanic and gentoo penguins, as well as close encounters with water fowl and passerine birds including Cobb’s wrens and tussock birds. Saunders provides opportunities to see black-browed albatross and imperial shags, as well as four species of breeding penguins (gentoo, king, Magellanic and rockhopper).

Additionally, enjoy time visiting West Point Island, which is thick with black-browed albatrosses and rockhopper penguins. Grave Cove offers nesting gentoo penguins and excellent hiking opportunities. New Island, Coffin’s Harbour is a reasonable walk from the landing site at the New Island South Wildlife Reserve, providing views of nesting black-browed albatrosses and rockhopper penguins. A more strenuous hike to Landsend Bluff may also reveal some South American fur seals. The site of the only land-based whaling station on the Falkland Islands is south of the landing beach. If a special permit is obtained, possibly also visit New Island North Nature Reserve for a farewell visit to the black-browed albatrosses (among other bird species) and South American fur seals that make the Falklands their home

Day 5
Port Stanley, Falklands

Visit Port Stanley, the capital of the Falklands and center of its culture with approximately 2,100 inhabitants. Port Stanley has some Victorian-era charm: colorful houses, well-tended gardens and English-style pubs are all found here. Take in several century-old clipper ships nearby, silent witnesses to the hardships of 19th century sailors. The small but interesting museum is also worth a visit, covering the early days of settlement up to the Falklands War. Feel free to wander at will, though be aware that admission fees to local attractions are not included in the voyage.

Days 8 - 12
South Georgia

Today arrive at the first activity site in South Georgia. Weather conditions on South Georgia can be challenging and will largely dictate the program. Over the next few days, possible sites to visit are each fascinating in their own way. At Prion Island, hope to witness large wandering albatross sitting on eggs or nursing their chicks (note: the island is closed to visitors during the early part of the breeding season from November 20-January 7). In Fortuna Bay, penguins and seals inhabit the beaches and guests may follow the final section of Shackleton’s route to the abandoned whaling village of Stromness. The route leads across the mountain pass beyond “Shackleton’s Waterfall.” The terrain is partly swampy and some small streams may have to be crossed along the way.

Salisbury Plain, St. Andrews Bay and Gold Harbour house the three largest king penguin colonies in South Georgia and are also home to a substantial number of Antarctic fur seals during the breeding season of December through January. At Grytviken, see an abandoned whaling station, where king penguins now walk in the streets and elephant seals have taken residency. Opportunities may exist to visit the South Georgia Museum as well as Shackleton’s grave.

At Cobblers Cove aim for Rookery Point to see macaroni penguins; light-mantled sooty albatrosses nest along the coastline and giant petrels and gentoo penguins can be observed as well. Cooper Bay offers the largest chinstrap penguin population and gentoo and also macaroni penguins are present. Antarctic terns, whitechinnes petrels, blue-eyed shags and light-mantled sooty albatrosses can be spotted too.

Days 16 - 19
Antarctic Peninsula

If the ice permits, sail into the Weddell Sea. Huge tabular icebergs welcome the vessel’s arrival to the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula. Hope to visit Wilhelmina Bay, a likely spot to see feeding humpback whales. If conditions allow, embark on a Zodiac cruise to the ghostly wreck of the Guvernøren, a whaling vessel that caught fire here in 1915. Neko Harbour, another possible visit, offers an epic landscape of mammoth glaciers and endless wind-carved snow, and opportunities for a Zodiac cruise and landing that afford the closest views of the surrounding alpine peaks. Finally, at Paradise Bay there may be a Zodiac cruise in sprawling, ice-flecked waters, where there’s a good chance to encounter humpback and minke whales.

Before venturing into the Drake Passage, hope to sail in and around the southern parts of Gerlache Strait, and if ice conditions allow, possibly even reach the Lemaire Channel. Depart from the Peninsula when weather and sea conditions on the Drake Passage are predicted as favorable.
