Experience the pinnacle of expedition travel - Antarctica. It's a place of extremes, where wildlife and landscapes unfold like nowhere else in the world. The extraordinary islands around the Antarctic Peninsula provide a stunning reward for those who conquer the Drake Passage. Be among orca and humpback whales, hear calving glaciers pierce the Antarctic silence, and experience with all your senses scenes that capture the continent's wild and pure beauty. Regular excursions by Zodiac, a comprehensive onboard lecture program presented by experts and some special guests plus a state-of-the-art ship with health and wellness facilities - you'll explore the best of Antarctica on this epic 11-day voyage.
Day 1: Ushuaia
Welcome to Ushuaia, Argentina, the world’s southernmost city. On arrival at the airport, meet your Peregrine representative who will transfer you to your hotel. Attend a briefing at 7.30 pm to run through the details of the following day’s embarkation. If you arrive early and have some time, feel free to explore Ushuaia as you please. This city, a major port for Antarctica-bound vessels, has quite the dramatic setting, overlooking the Beagle Channel and surrounded by mountains.
Day 2: Ushuaia – Embarkation Day
Embarking late afternoon, cruise down the gorgeous Beagle Channel. This channel transects the Tierra del Fuego archipelago in the extreme south of South America. Expect an air of excitement as you depart, and the last glimpse of land disappears into the distance. The next time you see land you will find yourself in the world’s southernmost continent.
Day 3-4: Drake Passage
The time has come to cross the Drake Passage, the legendary body of water named after the famous English explorer Sir Francis Drake. If the conditions are right, enjoy some time out on deck to spot dolphins, orcas or perhaps albatross. If the waters are a little rough, perhaps relax and partake in some of the superb onboard facilities of the Ocean Endeavour. As well as safety briefings, there will be briefings on what lies ahead. A comprehensive lecture program from onboard experts will run throughout the journey; this will explore the history, geology and biology of the Great White Continent. With any luck we will make it to land by early evening on Day 4 – a moment that always brings much excitement.
Day 5-8: Antarctic Peninsula
As the Antarctic Convergence is left in your wake, the adventure really begins. Four incredible days of exploring the Antarctic Peninsula ensue. Feast your eyes on glaciers, mountains and an extraordinary array of wildlife, as the immensity and beauty of the regions really comes into view. Every day is a new adventure, and each day you will explore landings, bays and channels on excursions by Zodiac. There are a number of potential landing sites, and the crew will decide which are most appropriate based on conditions. While the landscapes themselves dazzle, it is all about the wildlife on these excursions as we encounter penguin rookeries, spot humpback and mink whales, look out for leopard seals. There will also be the chance to see and hear calving glaciers cracking through the Antarctic silence, and you can scramble up snowy tracks to behold 360-degree views.
Day 9-10: At Sea
Say goodbye to the Antarctic Peninsula as you set off for Ushuaia. Take the opportunity to share photographs with fellow travellers, scout for wildlife once again from on deck, enjoy final lectures from the onboard experts, and make use of the Ocean Endeavour’s health and wellness facilities.
Day 11: Ushuaia – Disembarkation Day
Farewell your shipmates as the adventure draws to a close back in Ushuaia.
- Learn from Antarctic experts in marine biology, glaciology and history in a comprehensive lecture program and, depending on your voyage date, revered Australian media personalities Andrew Denton and Jennifer Byrne may join you on the expedition and take part in the presentation program.
- With four full days dedicated to exploring the Antarctic Peninsula, you will experience multiple Zodiac excursions and shore landings, getting up close and personal with the icy wilderness and unique wildlife.
- Enjoy the freedom to customise your trip with a wide range of optional activities, including kayaking expeditions, a photography masterclass, onboard yoga and massage, or an overnight camping experience.
- Appreciate a greater personal touch, with each Peregrine expedition aboard the Ocean Endeavour having a favourable ratio of one expedition crew member for every eight passengers.
- Rest assured you will leave only footprints behind, with your expedition fully carbon offset, serving only sustainably sourced seafood and opting for biodegradable products over single-use plastics.
