Weddell Sea - In search of Emperor Penguins

On Sale

Journey south to the incomparable Antarctic Peninsula, home to a vast array of wildlife and a dramatic landscape which never fails to astound. During our voyage we hope to catch sight of the majestic Emperor Penguin, and our itinerary will be built around this objective. Our voyage will take us beyond the fringes of the peninsula, venturing into the Weddell Sea where tabular icebergs stretch to the horizon. We'll visit Paulet Island - home to millions of Adelie penguins, and set foot on the continent at Brown Bluff, before visits to Half Moon Island and Deception Island. With regular shore excursions to walk among the many penguins and other wildlife, along with a fascinating and informative lecture program presented by our expert expedition crew, the wonder of the Antarctic is yours to discover.
