This South Georgia Explorer voyage explores a number of historically significant Antarctic areas, such as the very rarely visited Bellingshausen Sea, Marguerite Bay, and Alexander Island. Few places compare to South Georgia in terms of exotic wildlife and jaw-dropping scenery. On this exploratory voyage you can enjoy wandering albatross colonies while also seeing some of the biggest breeding spots for king penguins and elephant seals on Earth – along with day after day of amazing polar scenery.
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.
