Press release: The early bird catches the penguin! 30% off 2020/2021 Antarctic expeditions with Chimu on sale now.

Sydney, Monday 1st April 2019

Australia’s Polar specialists, Chimu Adventures, today launched their early bird sale for Antarctic expedition cruises during the 2020/2021 season. They will be offering up to 30% off selected voyages and clients can secure a berth for AU$7,090; the most competitive Antarctic cruise price in the industry. The sale will end on the 30th April 2019 with the cheapest prices expected to sell out quickly.

Chimu can confirm that they have seen a significant rise in clients booking Antarctic expeditions early; the percentage of reservations made 18 or more months in advance has doubled (38% for the 2019/2020 season compared to 19% for the 2018/2019 season). Chimu specialise in small ship expeditions (under 200 passengers) therefore berths are highly sought after.

Co-founder Chad Carey explains: “Australian’s are adventurous travellers and we have seen an increasing popularity in our Antarctic expeditions. People want to get closer to nature and understand the world we live in, as well as achieving big travel goals. They don’t want to miss out on this experience so they get in touch with us way ahead of travelling.”

Itineraries on sale in Chimu’s Antarctic early bird sale range from budget to luxury ships, with a lead in price of just AU$7,090. The sale also includes itineraries to Antarctica, The Falkland Islands and South Georgia:
