An Antarctic Peninsula voyage is also known as the ‘Classic Antarctic’ route. The great star-actors of Antarctica are the penguins and in total seven species could appear before your very own eyes.
On Cuverville Island we will find a large colony of Gentoo Penguins and breeding pairs of Brown Skuas. In Neko Harbour, one of the highlights we will have the opportunity to set foot on the Antarctic Continent in a magnificent landscape of huge glaciers calving at sea level. Paradise Bay again with its myriad icebergs, will be another landing and we have good chances to see Humpback and Minke Whales. After sailing through the Neumayer Channel, we hope to visit the old British research station at Port Lockroy on Goudier Island. We sail through the spectacular Lemaire Channel to Pléneau and Petermann Island where we can find Adélie penguins and Blue-eyed shags and we should see Humpback whales, Minke whales and Fin whales. Sailing north through Gerlache Strait we arrive at Wilhelmina Bay where we often see feeding Humpback whales.
