Days 3-4: Drake Passage

Named after Sir Francis Drake, the Drake Passage is one of the worldÂs great seaways, connecting the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Once you cross the Antarctic Convergence, you will start to feel the air getting crisper and colder. Antarctic penguins will hunt and play around you and icebergs are an ever present feature of the landscape. Dedicated to scientific research and with no permanent inhabitants, Antarctica is home to millions of penguins and its seas provide sustenance to thousands of whales. Simple words can do little to convey the feeling of being here, looking out upon the vast emptiness of the great white continent. The ice, wind and weather dictate life in Antarctica, as well as your route. Every voyage is unique and your experienced crew will endeavor to make each one an experience of a lifetime. The final choice of landings will be made in the course of the voyage.
