Visiting the Emperor Penguins near Snow Hill Island in the Weddell Sea is unlike any expedition cruise to Antarctica.  Using helicopters we will get you within striking distance of the rookery.  During the voyage you will of course also see plenty of other wildlife, including Adélie and Gentoo penguins, and marvel at the stunning scenery.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

All our Antarctic cruises have an open-bridge policy which means you are allowed on the bridge to get a forward view of the ship and the ocean.  It is a great way to spot birds, animals and icebergs while staying warm.
