On this 11-day inspiring cruise, we explore the Great White Continent's magnificent landscapes, glacial mountains, and incredible wildlife before reaching 66°33′ – the Antarctic Circle. Your voyage departs from the southenmost city in the world, laving through the Beagle Channel and out into the Drake Lake (or Shake). The Ocean Victory has purpose-built with stabilizers, powerful engines, and the patented reclining bow, which ensures stability and comfort in the rough seas of the Drake Passage.
Once you reach Antarctica, we enjoy the calming silence and alluring beauty of the Antarctic mainland during hikes and Zodiac excursions. Spread in isolation along the coast, we also see a number of manned and unmanned research stations, which we aim to visit before accomplishing our goal – crossing the Antarctic Circle at 66°33′ south. Here, the sun is up for 24-hours a day during the austral summer. Our expedition may include visits to sites such as Pleneau and Petermann Islands, Crystal Sound and Fish Island.
Dense pack ice forbids many ordinary vessels from reach this far south, but with a high ice-class rating, Ocean Victory moves swiftly carrying us on an adventure for life.
