Planning Your Expedition
When to Embark: November – April
If you’re looking to see some of this amazing wildlife up close, November to April is the best time to visit. While many people assume that Antarctica is colder in winter, December and January actually have the highest average temperatures on the southernmost continent.
During the Antarctic summer, when temperatures are warmer, animals are actively breeding. Thus, December-February is the prime time to see penguin chicks, while December-April offers the best chance of seeing whales. Keep in mind that even during the summer months, temperatures can range from -30 degrees Celsius to 5 degrees Celsius, so come prepared with plenty of warm clothes!
When planning a vacation, it can be daunting to think about squeezing onto a huge cruise ship with thousands of other travelers. However, if you are seeking the experience of a lifetime, a cruise to Antarctica may be just what you’re looking for.
A majority of Antarctic voyages leave from Chile or Argentina, so you get the incredible chance to explore the beauty of South America as well before or after your voyage! These cruises have a maximum capacity of 500 passengers, providing an intimate and unique experience unlike any other. Adventurers will then disembark from their ship at designated landing sites, and only 100 passengers are allowed on shore at a time. (Smaller ships provide greater flexibility in terms of docking locations and excursion options). Explore icebergs and glaciers with a small group of like-minded enthusiasts, and get up close and personal with wildlife in their natural habitat.
On a cruise, you’ll have access to expert guides who can show you all the best parts of Antarctica and help you spot some of its most elusive residents, such as leopard seals and emperor penguins. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy all the luxuries of a cruise ship while making your way through some of the most remote and untouched corners of the world—talk about an unforgettable experience!
