This is the ULTIMATE Antarctic Peninsula cruise!
Visiting Antarctica is nothing shy of mind blowing! After a formidable journey across the drake passage, the endless seascape will give way to great white ethereal vistas, sculptured by ice, and weathered by isolation. This journey will take you from Ushuaia to the South Shetland Islands and onto the Antarctic Peninsula where you will be swathed in the beauty of the most enigmatic place on earth. This complete encounter will take you on a deeper exploration than your average Antarctic Peninsula cruise and with the right conditions, will even venture over to the Weddell Sea where tabular icebergs lay and the history of Antarctic Exploration sighs in echoes through the rarely visited landscapes.
Joining this exclusive Chimu Charter is self-professed geek, comedian and author, Adam Spencer. He has been a breakfast radio announcer on triple j and ABC Sydney, a TV personality on everything from comedies Good News Week and The Glasshouse to weekly sports wrap The Back Page, and is a member of the Sleek Geeks Science Team with Dr Karl Kruszelnicki. On board Adam will excite the crowd with his endless curiosity about - pretty much everything! Focussing on our citizen science program, Adam will spearhead crowd enthusiasm to help scientists via 'passer by' observations in Antarctica. Travellers will capture cloud formations, sea bird activity and whale tails through imagery, and this detail, among other things will be sent back to scientific bases to assist professionals via our onboard Citizen Science Co-ordinator.
Antarctica and the Southern Ocean play critical roles in the regulation of the Earth’s climate system and many ways are the “canary in the coal mine” of climate change.
Through partnerships with NASA, Oxford University, Happy Whale and others, our onboard Citizen Science Program allows travellers to contribute to the future of Antarctica, to collect data that can contribute to real scientific studies of the frozen continent and its inhabitants.
Your experiences through our in-depth expedition program is our number one priority and we’re excited to invite you to participate in giving back whilst we present to you one of the highlights of your life!
Antarctica never disappoints!
