2022 is the year for checking off BUCKET LIST items – join me on an adventure of a lifetime!

On November 5th we will depart on a 10-day voyage to the Great White Continent! After extensive research and negotiations – I have found “The one.” The Ultimate Package: the ship, the experience, the itinerary. I am so stoked for a 10-day off-the-grid, action-packed trip in the wildlife, the snow, the mountains, and the gigantic icebergs. Below is a glimpse into our upcoming expedition. I worked hard to secure exclusive discounts for my guests and unbeatable payment plans, so take advantage of the lowest prices available for this 10-day expedition! I am certain that you won’t find a better deal for a trip like this one and the lower rate cabins will sell out really fast.

Once you review all the details, please fill out the form on the bottom and we will reach out to you to secure your spot. Please only fill out the form if you are certain about joining; since rooms are available on a first-come-first-serve basis, we want to make sure that everyone gets a fair chance.

The Journey

Onboard The Ocean Atlantic, one of the strongest ships in Antarctica, we will get close to the dramatic coastlines! Zodiac cruising and shore landings are an important and considerable part of the planned itinerary, enabling all guests to set foot several times on the Antarctic continent, as well as the many surrounding sub-antarctic islands. We will cross the mighty Drake Passage en-route for the South Shetland Islands, making Zodiac landings at penguin rookeries, research stations, and fascinating lookouts along the way. Continuing southward, deep into the inlets of Antarctica, we pass the famous Gerlache Strait, where 3000-ft ice cliffs rise straight out of the still water. On no other journey can you experience so much pristine nature and varied wildlife in so few days.

The Itinerary

The Ship

Newly renovated in 2016 and with an international ice class rating of 1B, The Ocean Atlantic is one of the strongest ships operating in Antarctica. The ship is equipped with stabilizers in order to reduce the ship’s roll. However, it is possible to periodically encounter changing environments and climate patterns, including rough seas and large swells.

Single supplements are an additional 75% of the relevant cabin rate. Suites and Category A are available upon request.
