“The ship and staff for the journey provided enthusiastic, effective and patient support, with a well-executed itinerary that I'd trust for future trips. Food and accommodation were excellent. Waters were very calm once reaching Antarctica, to relieve anyone's seasickness. Mountain and Glacier landscapes were great. The wildlife in the area is plentiful, where we saw at least some whales, seals and penguins every day we were in Antarctica and probably 20ish whales overall. The animals aren't afraid of humans and so at worst ignore you as you get fairly close. Extra downtime filled with interesting presentations about history, animals, current antarctic science and recent environmental issue affecting it. If you absolutely must have Emporer penguins, elephant seals or Orca, check the season you're going as we saw just a few but they were unusual and not to be expected at the time/places we went.

I'd recommend this trip to anyone I knew going to Antarctica who hasn't been there before and doesn't have extremely specific desires for wildlife that I didn't mention. It's fun, comprehensive, and the minimum commitment required for the adventure it offers.

This trip took place on the Ocean Endeavor, in early-mid February, on the West side of the Antarctic Peninsula.”

“The trip to South Georgia and Antarctica with was the best experience I had on my journey so far. The rooms on board the Ocean Diamond are big and comfy. The food was awesome and the landings worked very fast and organized so we could spend more time on shore.”

Antarctica — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Nonetheless, there are still plenty of great cruises and expeditions available for those who are brave enough to visit it — and it can be quite exciting to be one of the few people who ever get the chance to explore this ice-covered continent. Check out some of the things you should know before your trip to Antarctica. 

Antarctica Cruise Highlights

  • Catch a glimpse of wildlife in their natural habitat like the Emperor Penguins, whales and seals
  • Experience the most extreme side of nature, visiting some corners of the Earth that are only accessible by special ice-strengthened boats
  • Cross the infamous Drake Passage, or the Sea of Hoces - the world’s roughest sea (brace yourself if you are prone to get seasick)

Antarctica Travel Tips

  • There are strict environmental guidelines that you must follow on your visit to Antarctica, and you cannot visit on your own. You will have to explore the region as part of a small group on a cruise ship, accompanied by a guide.
  • Antarctica can only be visited during the continent’s short summer months, typically between November and March. Otherwise, the weather is too harsh.
  • There are about 24 hours of sunlight in this part of the world, so be sure to pack sunscreen.
  • Most trips to Antarctica depart from Argentina and run for multiple days. Expect to be gone for anywhere from 10 days to an entire month. This is a long adventure!
