Antarctica Expedition

Jan 24th - Feb 7th, 2019

 

A Photographic excursion for ALL LEVELS

Including Beginner through Advanced!

We have VERY LIMITED space for

this tour.

This is a true trip of a lifetime and will be an unforgettable photography adventure unlike anything else anywhere in the world!

The Adventure:

This remarkable expedition departs from the far southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, Argentina.  After a two day journey across the Drake Passage, we will come to the continent of Antarctica. For many, the last continent on their list to step foot on! YES, we DO make landfall and even have some very special items in store for you! 

THIS ADVENTURE IS TRULY INCREDIBLE!

This is expedition cruising at its most authentic. Our route and exploration opportunities in Antarctica are heavily dependent on weather and ice conditions. Our experienced captain and expedition leader decide the itinerary and continually adjust plans as conditions and opportunities warrant. We take advantage of long daylight hours to exploit every opportunity to experience excellent wildlife viewing, amazing scenery, and excursions via Zodiac.

The Antarctic Peninsula region contains some of the world’s most impressive scenery and some of Antarctica’s best wildlife viewing opportunities. Protected bays and narrow channels are surrounded by towering mountain peaks covered in permanent snow and immense glaciers. Icebergs of every size and description complete an image of incomparable beauty. Waters rich with krill are home to a variety of whale and seal species. The whole area is alive with penguins foraging at sea and forming large nesting colonies at special places on land. The area is also home to Antarctic research stations of various nationalities. Some stations have a gift shop and post office.
 

THE DETAILS:

  • Dates: Jan 24th – Feb 7th, 2019 
  • Price: $13,795 Superior Suite ($16,795 Ship and Tour company price),  Prices are $3000 LESS then if you bought directly from the ship itself and INCLUDE photography instruction and priorities for our group!  See rooms and ship details here. 

We have been able to negotiate with Poseidon Expeditions for our group specifically because of the relationship we have formed. This allows for MUCH LESS  cost for our clients as well as exclusive priorities JUST for our group! 

We realize that this is an expensive tour, however, there is no other way to do this and actually make landfall and do what we do. These prices are actually below what we were even able to charge in 2016 and includes 3 additional days as well as all of your photography instruction, landing fees etc.  This is because we have been able to build a relationship with Poseidon Expeditions, one of the best expedition companies in the world.
