Highlights of this voyage

Explore and sail the Southern Ocean

Before setting off for the lost continent we will explore the shores and Islands of the Falklands. Colourful wild live like the Kingpenguin and Rockhopers are the main attractions.

This trip we will not only visit the Antarctic peninsula but also South Georgia. South Georgia used to be home to many whaling factories not so long ago. Today South Georgia, like Antarctica is highly protected! It is only permanently inhabited by scientist. This enabled the flora and fauna to start to recover. The Elephant seals  are again king on the beach!

Coming back from South Georgia, we head for Antarctica where we hope that Elephant Island will be our first land fall. Following this chain of Islands we will come to the South Shetland Islands. Its highlights the imploded Deception Island. From there our journey continues to take in the sights of the great white continent. Possible places to visit are Half-moon bay, Paradise harbour, Port Lockroy, al depending on the weather conditions of course. During our stay on the peninsula it would be very possible to be in company of Humpback whales and Fin Whales.

The most Southern continent also has its own kind of fauna like the many penguins, but also a great variety of seals among whom we can hopefully find the fearsome looking Leopard Seal. If the ice allows us we will try to transit the Le Maire channel with it awesome views! After a life changing cruise through this new world it is time to set off for Tierra Del Fuego, the land of fire.

On our way across the Drake Passage we hope to make land fall at Cape Horn. This rock is an icon for many a brave sailor. After clearing in to Chilli in the world’s most southerly village, Puerto Williams we hope to have a look around Isla Navarino, before finishing this voyage.
