Join ever-popular expedition leaders Woody and Annie as we present Arctic and Antarctica journeys available with Peregrine. Discover the best times to go, the differences between the regions and schedules for 2015.
Woody and Annie come with a wealth of experience, having worked on Peregrine ships in various guises for at least 12 years. Woody began as a barman, Annie as the ship’s doctor (yes, she’s a qualified GP), and they both worked their way through various roles such as hotel manager and zodiac driver until they began leading trips themselves.
For the past seven or eight seasons they have been Peregrine’s most popular Expedition Leaders, having led more than 100 voyages to Antarctica between them, and as many times again to the Arctic, where Spitsbergen remains their favourite place.
Their passion for the polar regions is contagious. Just ask them, they’ll tell you they have the best jobs in the world (and who could disagree?).
Please note this event will be held at the Santos Conservation Centre, Adelaide Zoo, with a 6:15pm start time.
