This new voyage takes place at the height of the Antarctic summer. We enjoy extended daylight hours at this time of the season, the wildlife colonies are busy and as the sea ice continues to break up, allowing a range of landing sites to explore as well as making a stop at one of the greatest wildlife spots on the planet. We cross the Drake Passage arriving in Antarctica to celebrate the New Year!

“Rose and David’s thorough attention to detail with my first trip to Antarctica in 2010 contributed greatly to my most amazing travel experience ! The ship, the crew and the great One Ocean team took care of the rest. It’s a phenomenal place and I was thrilled to make it “twice in a lifetime” in 2015.”

Sir Ernest Shackleton died returning from an Antarctic voyage and his body was being sent back to England when his wife asked why? ‘Let him rest in South Georgia, it is what he would want’ and so he is buried in the graveyard at Grytviken, fittingly facing due south. All our journeys hope to visit him, drink a toast, and pay respects to ‘The Boss”.
