Day 8 - 11: Antarctic Peninsula
This is the day you get a chance to step foot on the Great White Continent! Over the next 4 days you will be navigating southwards making stops in the South Shetland Islands then through the Bransfield Strait and to the Antarctic Peninsula. Most operators attempt 2 excursions per day, while they navigate through the area. But your itinerary and daily schedule will be based on the local weather and ice conditions that you encounter. 

The Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands abound with wildlife activity. Penguins gather with their fast-growing chicks, whales are seen in great numbers, seals haul out onto ice floes and beaches, and numerous albatross and other seabirds trail in our wake. There is plenty of time to enjoy the sheer beauty and the breathtaking scenery of ice-choked waterways, blue and white icebergs, impressive glaciers and rugged snow-capped mountains. 

The Peninsula also has a remarkable history and, during the voyage, we will learn about some of the most important and dramatic expeditions to this remote corner of the world. 

Day 12 - 13: Drake Passage
