This 11 day Antarctica – Discovery & Learning with Navigational Workshop cruise delivers you into a landscape of dark rugged rock, pure white snow, and a fantastic variety of wildlife. Come say hello to whales, seals, and thousands of penguins. Be part of a true polar expedition! During this adventurous voyage, we will visit some of Antarctica’s remote islands. This includes the Wauwermans Islands (close to Anvers Island), where we will chart and make depth measurements while exploring the area in our Zodiac boats and kayaks. This Navigational Workshop activity is about learning the history, theory, and practice of land and sea navigation. Topics covered include the use of sextants, chart positioning, and GPS functions, among others. All courses led by experienced expedition guides.

Oceanwide Expeditions in a fantastic polar expert company that runs ship-based expeditions and are known for being the inventors of Basecamp Antarctica itineraries. Their goal is to take you off the ship and into the action as often as possible, allowing for maximum shore time with activities designed to accommodate a range of experience and fitness levels.

Oceanwide strives for close-contact, twice-daily outings on land and at sea (and sometimes below it). Their expert crew and nimble, ice-strengthened ships allow for safe passage, speedy disembarkations, and supremely flexible itineraries. Their fleet includes the smaller and refurbished M/V Ortelius and M/V Plancius as well as the new M/V Hondius.
