Features that make a cruise line special
Antarctica is a continent surrounded by oceans. Reaching the continent requires either sailing across the ocean or flying over it. The body of water between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula, the infamous Drake Passage, is known for its sea sickness-inducing violent storms. By choosing to fly over those stormy waters you choose the comfortable option.
Crossing from South America to Antarctica by ship takes two days, while flights take only 2 hours. You can use the precious time you save to explore more of South America. For example, Torres del Paine National Park is located near Punta Arenas. A visit to the park combines beautifully with our Antarctic Air-Cruises.
They only offer expeditions aboard small ships carrying a maximum of 75 guests. In Antarctica a regulation designed to manage environmental impact limits the number of visitors at any one location to no more than 100. So when larger ships visit, they must organize travelers in groups that take turns. Travel with us and you will spend time exploring, not waiting your turn to disembark the ship.
