Luxury Antarctic Boat Cruises
To join our luxury Antarctica boat and yacht cruises we fly you from Punta Arenas in Patagonia to Antarctica which means you avoid the Drake Passage which is very stormy and can be an truly enjoyable experience. You will start your cruise refreshed and ready to soak up everything Antarctica has to offer. Once again in Antarctica we only use small boutique boats which allow for far deeper explorations into the ice capped wilderness. Fewer guests on these luxury cruises means far more flexibility in terms of what you do every day, and embarking and disembarking is easy, quick and fun, rather than involving queues.
We can offer tours which take in South Georgia, penguins, Cape Horn, seals, whales and tonnes of other wildlife. Essentially we will always have a luxury Antarctica cruise which suits you, every boat is guided by true experts who love the areas they operate in – there will also be specialists who will give informal but informative talks on certain evenings which you can attend if you wish. Visits to Hope Bay, Deception Island and Paradise Bay are just some of the extraordinary locations you will experience.
Expert polar guides will arrange for your activities off the boat on a day to day basis, and there is never nothing to do – although you can enjoy the scenery from just about everywhere on your luxury cruise boat or yacht – these boats have been specially made to ensure maximum viewing from every corner.
You will have extraordinary experiences at the whaling outpost of Grytviken where Ernest Shackleton’s simple grave sits, take in the grassy uplands and mountains of South Georgia. St Andrew’s Bay provides an exceptional view of over 1500 king penguins. The focus here is on a luxury experience, so everything such as the food, quality of service, experience of the guides is as good as it gets – boats are made to carry between 60 – 80 passengers allowing everyone to have a very personal experience on this life changing cruise.
Our luxury Antarctica cruises and boat charters operate from November to March every year, and we can also pre book many other excursions such as sea kayaking, hiking, and snowshoeing. For the less active the comfortable cabins, and luxury dining and surround vistas will still make this luxury cruise one of the most exciting you have ever done.
The Antarctic peninsula has lots of small islands which will be explored on your cruise, both on the boat and on foot – every experience is exclusive and tailor made based on the guests that have booked onto it, we do advise pre booking these excursions which we will happily do for you – our up to date first hand knowledge of this area means that after a discussion with you we can recommend which extras we should add to ensure your trip is exactly what you want.Show Less
