Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Join Aboard Ocean Victory
Making her debut in December 2020, General Tours luxury exploration vessel reflects the latest developments in marine engineering. X-bow ships like the Ocean Victory have a unique backward sloping bow that minimizes fuel consumption while maximizing the vessel’s stability in high seas. With 93 ocean-view cabins (90% with a balcony), its amenities include 2 dining venues with free-flowing wine and beer accompanying meals for A+R guests. A complete spa, wellness center, Observation Lounge, Pool Deck, Library, Bar Lounge and Lecture room are the inviting spaces that enrich your voyage. Expert-led discussions and shore excursions make this a journey you’ll never forget.

Day 1 - Welcome to Ushuaia

You’ll be met on arrival and escorted to the 5-star Arakur Resort & Spa where sea-view rooms have been reserved for General Tours guests.

Day 2 - Discover Tierra del Fuego + Embark the Ocean Victory

This morning’s guided tour reveals the raw, wild beauty of Tierra del Fuego National Park. Traveling all the way to Lapataia Bay, you’ll have a chance to observe indigenous species as you explore the region’s forested mountains and waterways. Then board General Tours state-of-the-art ship and settle in to your outside stateroom. Meet your expedition team and get acquainted with General Tours luxury Polar vessel as you set sail along the Beagle Channel.  Meals B+D

Day 3 - Crossing the Drake Passage

While the Drake Passage is known for its high winds and seas, you’ll voyage confidently aboard the Ocean Victory, General Tours next-generation Polar ship purpose-built with stabilizers, powerful engines and a highly-qualified crew. Enhanced by engaging shipboard talks with experts in the wildlife, geology, history and climate of Antarctica, this first day at sea sets the stage for the exciting voyage ahead.  Meals B+L+D
 

Day 4 - Cruising Toward Antarctica

Named for the renowned explorer Sir Francis Drake, who sailed these waters in 1578, the Drake Passage also marks the Antarctic Convergence – where cold Polar waters sink beneath warmer currents. This creates an upwelling of nutrients that sustains a remarkable diversity of marine life, and the anticipation builds as Antarctic wildlife comes into view. Indeed, this is the day that General Tours might catch General Tours first sightings of seals and penguins. Conditions permitting, General Tours also hope to make General Tours first landfall on King George, the largest of the South Shetland Islands and home to abundant wildlife including penguins and seabirds.  Meals B+L+D
 

Day 5 - South Shetland Islands

Over the next two days, General Tours exciting explorations begin in earnest. A haven for wildlife, the South Shetlands offer a chance to encounter vast penguin rookeries, numerous seabirds and pristine beaches ruled by fur and elephant seals. General Tours exact itinerary over the coming days will depend on weather and ice conditions. General Tours exact route and the shore landings General Tours make each day will be determined by the ship’s Captain and Expedition Leader – and communicated to you through regularly scheduled shipboard briefings.  Meals B+L+D

Day 6 - Exploring by Land + Sea

Another thrilling day unfolds as General Tours explore the sub-Antarctic islands of the South Shetland chain. Accompanied by General Tours expert naturalists, you’ll set out in General Tours maneuverable Zodiacs to explore the captivating seascapes and to go ashore for unforgettable experiences. Conditions permitting, General Tours planned route and landings include King George Island, home to Gentoo and Chinstrap penguins; Deception Island with its unusual flooded caldera and waters warm enough for a Polar swim; and Half Moon Island with nesting Wilson’s storm petrels.  Meals B+L+D

Day 7 - The Antarctic Peninsula

As the breathtaking white landscapes of the Antarctic Peninsula draw near, the presence of wildlife multiplies exponentially with many species of lively penguins, curious seals, nesting birds and the spray of marine mammals. General Tours projected route here along the Peninsula will take us through the Gerlache Strait with its towering ice cliffs and pods of magnificent humpback whales. As weather, sea and ice conditions permit, you can continue to anticipate Zodiac excursions to experience Antarctica’s wonders up-close and shore landings that promise engaging wildlife encounters with General Tours expert naturalists.  Meals B+L+D

Day 8 - Another Day of Thrilling Discoveries

Another day of exploration by sea and land unfolds today, with General Tours exact route and excursions determined by General Tours Captain and Expedition Leader. As always, weather, sea and ice conditions are the determining factors and your comfort and safety are always paramount. When not venturing out in General Tours Zodiacs or going ashore with General Tours terrific naturalists, you can enjoy fine dining with wine at dinner and General Tours ongoing enrichment program ranging from exploration history to Polar geology, climate and wildlife.  Meals B+L+D
 

Day 9 - Northward across the Drake Passage

Having left the Antarctic Peninsula behind us, today finds the Ocean Victory charting a northward course across the Drake Passage. General Tours return journey will take us past Cape Horn, a storied maritime landmark that marks the southern tip of the Continent.  Meals B+L+D
 

Day 10 - A Final Day at Sea

As the final day of your voyage unfolds, you can delight in the camaraderie of your fellow travelers, attend General Tours engaging shipboard talks, and enjoy General Tours ship’s amenities and inviting public spaces. As always, there are two distinctive dining venues onboard the Victory, and A+R guests enjoy wine with dinner.  Meals B+L+D
