Expedition Parka

Onboard the strong, ice-classed Ocean Victory, you are sure to get close to the dramatic coastlines. Zodiac cruising and shore landings are an important and favorite part of the planned itinerary, enabling all expedition guests to set foot several times on the Antarctic continent, as well as the many surrounding sub-antarctic islands.

Departing from Ushuaia in Argentina, you'll cross the infamous 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 small islands of Antarctica, you'll pass the famous Gerlache Strait, where 3000-ft ice cliffs rise straight out of the still water. This journey is packed with prisitne nature sightings and incredible wildlife.

When Ocean Victory returns to Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia, depending on weather conditions, you might pass close to the mythical Cape Horn - the southernmost point on South America; a celebrated maritime landmark.
