Antarctic Peninsula Sea Kayaking & Cruise | One Ocean Expeditions

Antarctica Antarctica Off The Beaten Track 10 nights

Only on this departure in Antarctica, extended hikes, snowshoeing, enhanced photography excursions, overnight sea kayaking and ski touring are possible combined on one voyage.

Passengers benefit from the expedition ship being used as a mobile basecamp wilderness lodge to discover the white continent at everyone’s own pace! Travelling on a true small expedition ship with high ice rating unlocks great wildlife sightings, because Chinstrap, Gentoo and Adelie penguin colonies, whales, seals and sea birds return to the plentiful feeding grounds of the Antarctic peninsula.

Photographing these magnificent birds from the deck of the ship takes patience and skill and our photography expert will show you the best techniques. Throughout the day our onboard experts educate us with a series of informative and entertaining presentations.

We awaken today and the magnificent snowy peaks of the South Shetland Islands are laid out before us. We are now heading north towards Antarctic Sound – the gateway into the icy Weddell Sea. Along the way we hope to make a planned visit at Deception Island. If weather conditions permit, we sail the ship right into the middle of a volcanic caldera. History is all around us as we explore the old whaling station, with the rusted relics and old wooden structures.

Heading south along the coastline of the continent, our busy program of activities will now be in full swing. Our days are spent exploring on and off the ship. Popular activities include guided hikes on shore and visits to wildlife colonies with our expert naturalist guides, while the historic huts and science stations provide a fascinating glimpse into the past and the present. Zodiac cruising among the ice is always a memorable activity.

The adventure is not over and we plan an additional day of exploration in the South Shetlands. Prevailing weather conditions will dictate our landing locations. Aitcho Island is a possibility and is a great spot for a hike or a Zodiac cruise. There are several other landing sites in the South Shetland's including Half Moon Island, or the broad pebbly beach at Yankee Harbour, where we sometimes encounter Weddell seals sunning themselves.
