CLASSIC ANTARCTICA

DAY 1 DEPART FROM USHUAIA
This afternoon commence your embarkation for the USHUAIA and meet your expedition team and fellow travellers, as you settle into your cabins, we begin sailing along the famous Beagle Channel and the scenic Mackinlay Pass.

 

DAY 2 & 3 CROSSING THE DRAKE PASSAGE
Today we reach what is known as the Antarctic Convergence, named after the renowned explorer, Sir Francis Drake, who sailed it in 1578, the convergence is a biological barrier where cold polar water sinks beneath the warmer northern waters. It is also the northern limit for many Antarctic seabirds. Your Antarpply Expeditions’ lecturers will be out with you on open bridge deck to help in the identification of the amazing variety of seabirds, including many albatrosses, which follow in our wake.

 

Be ready as you get your first sightings of icebergs and snow-capped mountains indicating that we have reached the South Shetland Islands, a group of twenty islands and islets. Should weather permit it, you may be able to walk ashore and experience your first encounter with the penguins and seals on Day 3.

 

DAYS 4 TO 8 EXPLORING SOUTH SHETLAND IS. & THE ANTARCTIC PENINSULA
With its vast penguin rookeries, beaches ruled by Antarctic fur seals and Southern elephant seals, South Shetland Islands makes every day spent here unforgettable. Continue sailing through the narrow passage into the flooded caldera of Deception Island.

 

King George Island, the largest of the South Shetland Islands, is home to colonies of nesting Adélie and Chinstrap Penguins, Kelp Gulls, Blue-eyed Cormorants, Antarctic Terns and Southern Giant Petrels and it is where the place where different scientific bases from different countries are located. Here you will also be able to see Macaroni, Chinstrap and Gentoo Penguins as well as the elephant seals at Livingston Island.

 

The Antarctic Peninsula’s is full of history, it is here where you will have plenty of time to explore its amazing scenery, pristine wilderness of snow, ice, mountains and waterways, and get to see an incredible wide variety of wildlife such as penguins and seabirds. More than anything you will probably see Weddell, crabeater and leopard seals as well as Minke, killer (orca) and humpback whales at close range.

 

Subject to weather conditions we hip to navigate some of the most beautiful waterways such as the Gerlache Strait, the Neumayer Channel, and the Lemaire Channel; we hope to make at least two landings per day and possible landing sites may include:

 

Paradise Bay – the most aptly named place in the world with its impressive glacial fronts and mountains.

Paulet Island – visit the bustling Adélie Penguin (over 100,000 pairs breed here) and Blue-eyed Cormorant colonies.

Nordenskjöld  – Visit the stone survival hut built in 1903 which today has been taken over by nesting penguins.

Should weather be favourable we may also reach Melchior Island, Cuverville Island, Portal Point, Neko Harbour, Pléneau Island and if ice conditions permit, to Petermann Island for a visit to the southernmost colony of Gentoo Penguins.

 

DAYS 9 & 10 AT SEA CROSSING THE DRAKE PASSAGE, NORTHBOUND
As we leave Antarctica, we head north across the Drake Passage; your lecturers and naturalist guides will be on deck as we search for seabirds and whales.

 

DAY 11 ARRIVAL AT USHUAIA
We arrive in the morning and disembark in Ushuaia.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The above itinerary is a guide only and subject to weather conditions. Changes will be made by the Captain and/or Expedition Leader to facilitate the best results from the prevailing conditions.

 

CLASSIC SOUTH GEORGIA – ***Charted for 2014/15 Season

 

DAY 1 DEPART FROM SANTIAGO, CHILE
Depart Santiago for your flight to Mount Pleasant via Punta Arenas. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to Stanley where time will be given to explore the township on your own or perhaps take up some of the optional excursions that will be offered.

 

This evening board the USHUAIA ship, after cabins have been assigned and you have settle into your cabin, meet your crew and expedition staff and hear of safety regulation as the ship continues to sail towards South Georgia – home to more wildlife than anywhere on the planet and considered as one of the most beautiful and inspiring places on earth.

 

DAYS 2-4 AT SEA
The USHUAIA has an open bridge policy which allows guest in joining the officers on the bridge and learn about navigation. Take your cameras as there may be opportunities of Whale watching and seabirds swimming around the chip as we continue sailing. Later on join your expedition lecturers and naturalist who share their knowledge and speak of the different species of seabirds and other local wildlife, we may encounter such as light-mantled Sooty Albatross, Wandering Albatross, Grey-headed Albatross, Black-browed Albatross, Cape Petrel, Giant Petrel, Blue Petrel, Antarctic Prion amongst some that we may see as we cruise on.

 

DAYS 5-8 SOUTH GEORGIA
As you get closer, South Georgia comes into sight and even through it is an isolated island, it background is like none other with beautiful high mountains, enormous glaciers, deep fjords and low-lying grassland, it simply takes your breath away.

 

The daily itinerary for the following days will be determined by local conditions on sea and land.
Elsehul In the extreme North-west of the island, we have Elsehul – a small harbor home to colonies of Black-browed and Grey-headed Albatrosses can be seen from zodiacs. If weather permits, we may be able to land and walk up to a nesting site where we will find a couple of Light-mantled Sooty Albatross breeding and living.

 

Right Whale Bay
Here is where you will find fur seals, elephant seals and King Penguins amongst other bird species, such as Prions and Giant Petrels that call this beach formed by black volcanic ashes, home.

 

Bay of Isles
This glorious Bay of Isles is dotted with numerous islets, some are even possible to visit, subject to weather conditions.

 

Prion Island
On the tussock-grass covered islet, we would love to show you a breeding colony of Wandering Albatross. We ascend to the summit on a wooden board walk, which takes us close to their nests, offering comfortable viewing platforms.

 

Salisbury Plain
Other landing sites may take us to see the handsome King Penguins that breed on South Georgia in abundance. Salisbury Plain sometimes called the “Serengeti of the South” is a wildlife site without parallel. Several large glaciers provide a dramatic backdrop for the tens of thousands of King Penguins that nest in the tussock grass of this remarkable ecosystem. The wide beach makes for excellent walking as we visit the colony, where we are literally surrounded and delightfully outnumbered by throngs of curious, gentle penguins. Elephant and fur seals also abound, as well as Southern Giant Petrels and the occasional wandering Gentoo Penguin. Prepare for an awe-inspiring experience.

 

Fortuna Bay & Stromness Bay
In Fortuna Bay we will try to follow in the footsteps of the great explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton as we cross over to Stromness Bay. Today the whaling station which operated here from 1907 is abandoned and King Penguins as well as seals roam free through the streets. Buildings are occupied by elephant seals and guarded by fierce fur seals. On our way over the plain, we come across a colony of Gentoo Penguins in the vicinity of a melt water lake. They like to nest on the grass here.

 

Grytviken
Once a thriving whaling station, the ruins of Grytviken stand as a reminder of an era of exploitation that thankfully grows more distant by the day. In Grytviken, another former whaling town, we would also like to invite you for a visit to the most interesting Museum about Natural History and Whaling in the area, as well as to the last resting site of Sir Ernest Shackleton at the nearby graveyard in King Edward cove. Join the USHUAIA’s team for a graveside toast honoring this remarkable explorer and venerated mariner.

 

Gold Harbour
Gold Harbour offers some of the most spectacular scenery of the voyage: an amphitheatre of hanging glaciers and vertical cliffs rise straight out of the sea and the towering snow-covered peaks of Mt. Patterson create an unforgettable backdrop to an exceptional abundance of seabirds and seals.

 

We hope to make a landing on the beach. The surrounding cliffs of Gold Harbour provide habitat for nesting Light-mantled Sooty Albatrosses, which can often be seen soaring above the beach.

 

A large colony of King Penguins offers a fantastic opportunity to photograph these dramatic birds, and the sandy beach is a favorite haul-out spot for massive southern elephant seals.

 

Cooper Bay
Another highlight for today could be a visit in Cooper Bay at the southeast extremity of the South Georgia. There is a wealth of wildlife at this site, in a spectacular setting. Chinstrap, Gentoo and Macaroni Penguins dot the tussock slopes and there are plenty of fur seals on the beaches. Fascinating volcanic rocks towering over small fiords, invite for a thrilling zodiac cruise to watch wildlife from the waterfront.

 

Drygalski Fjord & Larsen Harbour
We hope to reach the Drygalski Fjord at the southeast extremity of the island. Although Drygalski Fjord´s glaciers have retreated significantly in recent decades, they remain one of the most striking features of this coastline, particularly the Risting and Jenkins Glaciers. With a little luck, we might see the glaciers calve and witness the birth of a new iceberg.

 

A small colony of Weddell seals, South Georgia Pipit, Smaller Burrowing Petrels and Prions may be seen on Larsen Harbour.

 

DAY 9 & 10 AT SEA
We will start crossing the waters to the South Shetland Islands offering excellent opportunities to be out on deck or to catch up on your reading and reflect on the amazing experience in South Georgia of the past few days. Lectures and activities will be offered throughout these two days.

 

In the afternoon we will leave Stanley and sail East en route to South Georgia. The island group of South Georgia is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and inspiring places on earth with more wildlife than virtually anywhere else on the planet. Though extremely isolated, South Georgia has amazing scenery ranging from high mountains and mighty glaciers to deep fjords and low-lying grassland.

 

DAY 11 ELEPHANT ISLAND, SOUTH SHETLAND ISLANDS
Sir Ernest Shackleton admirers will need no introduction to this historic isle. In 1916 Shackleton was forced to leave 22 of his men stranded on these shores, while he and five others embarked on an unbelievable last-ditch rescue attempt. What followed is one of the greatest rescue stories of all time. We will attempt a zodiac cruise off this historic site and every passenger will return with a greater knowledge of this gripping tale of adventure in a truly remarkable part of the world.

 

DAYS 12-14 ANTARCTIC PENINSULA & SOUTH SHETLAND ISLANDS
The South Shetland Islands are a haven for wildlife. Vast penguin rookeries, beaches ruled by Antarctic fur seals and southern elephant seals make every day spent in this amazing island group unforgettable.

 

The Antarctic Peninsula’s remarkable history will provide you with a type of excitement often only associated with the early explorers. You will have time to explore its amazing scenery, a pristine wilderness of snow, ice, mountains and waterways, and an incredible wide variety of wildlife. Apart from penguins and seabirds you are very likely to see Weddell, crabeater and leopard seals as well as Minke, killer (orca) and humpback whales at close range.

 

We hope to navigate some of the most beautiful waterways (depending on the ice conditions), such as the Antarctic Sound and the Northern Gerlache Strait. We plan to make at least two landings per day. However, our exact itinerary will be determined by local conditions on sea and land. The following destinations are among those we hope to explore:

 

Deception Island, South Shetland Islands
Long ago, volcanic pressure on Deception Island resulted in a tremendous eruption that caused the island’s peak to explode. The resulting caldera flooded with seawater, creating the unique landmass we may visit today. Our Captain will expertly pilot the ship through a narrow gateway in the icy cliffs of the island, taking the USHUAIA into the caldera itself. Stark volcanic landscapes wait for us on the inside. Brave souls may don their bathing suits for the unusual opportunity of a swim in the Antarctic, since the waters around Deception Island are usually geo-thermally heated!

 

Half Moon Island, South Shetland Islands

The crescent-shaped island lies in the entrance to Moon Bay between Greenwich and Livingston Islands. There are some excellent hiking opportunities and some truly glorious scenery. A short climb uphill over the cobbled beach is required to reach the first of the breeding Chinstrap Penguins.

 

Antarctic Sound
The passage to the east side of the Antarctic Peninsula traverses Antarctic Sound, which is 30 miles (48 km) long and 7-12 miles (11-19 km) wide and runs northwest-to-southeast. This is where huge tabular icebergs roam. All-white, Black-pupiled, and Black-billed Snow Petrels are likely to be coursing over the scenery, often joined by Pintado Petrels and early in the spring, by Antarctic Petrels streaming south to nesting territories on slopes fringing the Weddell Sea.

 

Brown Bluff
The spectacular rust-colored promontory on the Tabarin Peninsula, Brown Bluff, is located south of Hope Bay. On its long beach more than 20,000 Adélie penguins and a smaller group of Gentoo Penguins have found their home. There is also a potpourri of Kelp Gulls, Snow Petrels, and Pintado Petrels swirling above. This would also be a continental landing.

 

Argentinean Antarctic Station Esperanza
Another possibility to actually step onto the continent would be a visit to the Argentinean Antarctic Station “Esperanza”. The year round station in the Antarctic Sound counts with a small school, as some of the personnel did come with their children to Antarctica. In the immediate vicinity there is a colony of Adélie Penguins, which we might also visit.

 

Hydrurga Rocks
This small island group of islets lies east of Two Hummock Island in the Palmer Archipelago. Chinstrap Penguins, Blue-eyed Shags, and Kelp Gulls are confirmed breeders. Once we have climbed uphill – the island rises to approximately 25 meters above sea level – the views of the northern Gerlache Strait with its steep ice-covered mountains in the backdrop are stunning.

 

Portal Point
Portal Point served as the gateway for a route to the Peninsula plateau. The snow slope from the landing rocks rises steeply toward the plateau. There are large glacial tongues extending down to sea level. These terminate against the sea in high ice cliffs. Nearby Charlotte Bay is often filled with icebergs.

 

DAYS 15 & 16 AT SEA CROSSING THE DRAKE PASSAGE, NORTHBOUND
We leave Antarctica the evening before and head north across the Drake Passage. Named after the renowned explorer, Sir Frances Drake, who sailed these waters in 1578, the Drake Passage marks the Antarctic Convergence, a biological barrier where cold polar water sinks beneath the warmer northern waters. This creates a great upwelling of nutrients, which sustains the biodiversity of this region. The Drake Passage also marks the northern limit of many Antarctic seabirds. As we sail across the passage, Antarpply Expeditions’ lecturers will be out with you on deck to help in the identification of whales and an amazing variety of seabirds, including many albatrosses, which follow in our wake. Join our lecturers for some final lectures and take the chance to relax and reflect on the fascinating adventures of the past days on the way back to Ushuaia.

 

DAY 17 ARRIVAL IN USHUAIA
We arrive at the port of Ushuaia in the early morning and disembark the USHUAIA after breakfast.

 

INCLUDED: LAN Chile flight from Santiago, Chile to Stanley, Falkland Islands (Malvinas) on October 19, 2013; transfers in Stanley from the airport to the USHUAIA and excursions in and around Stanley; as well as landing fees in South Georgia.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The above itinerary is a guide only. Our exact route and program will vary to take best advantage of local weather and ice conditions and opportunities to view wildlife. Changes will be made by the Captain and/or Expedition Leader to facilitate the best results from the prevailing conditions. A daily program sheet will be issued on board. Flexibility is the key to success.

DAYS 4 TO 6 EXPLORING THE WEDDELL SEA
Weddell sea is chock-a-block full with ice, making it an exciting ice navigation trip. Early morning, head to the deck to view a sunrise like no other that you’ve ever seen. Huge tabular bergs break from the Larsen, Ronne, and Filchner ice shelves and combine with one-year-old and multi-year sea ice to produce a floating, undulating panorama of rugged ice scenery. All-white Snow Petrels are likely to be coursing over the floes, often joined by Pintado Petrels.

 

The usual passage to the east side of the Antarctic Peninsula passes through the Antarctic Sound, which is 48 km long and 11-19 km wide that runs northwest-to-southeast. The Weddell Sea is home to Adélie Penguin population. Devil Island, Paulet Island and the already mentioned sites, might give us ample proof of this. The numbers of penguins are breathtaking, if we are lucky we may even see juvenile Emperor Penguins riding ice floes but are by no means regular in the area. This region also teems with vibrant exploration history waiting to be explored.

 

DAYS 7-9 EXPLORING THE ANTARCTIC PENINSULA & THE STH SHETLAND IS.
