Spring (September to October)

Spring in this region is characterized by longer days and rising temperatures. The sea ice begins to break up, allowing for greater access to some areas by ship. This is a good time to visit for those who want to witness the start of the breeding season for penguins, seals, and other wildlife.

Summer (November to February)

Summer in Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) is characterized by 24-hour daylight and relatively mild temperatures. The sea ice begins to break up, allowing for access to more areas by ship. This is a popular time for tourism, as visitors can witness the migration of penguins, seals, and whales to the region.

Autumn (March to May)

Autumn in this region is characterized by cooler temperatures and shorter days. The sea ice begins to re-form, limiting access to some areas by ship. However, this is still a good time to visit for those who want to avoid the summer crowds and experience the stunning landscapes and wildlife.

Winter (June to August)

Winter in Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) is characterized by extreme cold, darkness, and the presence of sea ice. Few visitors travel to the region during this time, as many areas are inaccessible due to the ice. However, for those who do make the journey, this is a unique opportunity to experience the isolation and extreme conditions of the region.

Day 1. Welcome to a unique experience!

  • Enjoy the morning at leisure to explore Ushuaia before boarding our ship, the brand-new Ocean Albatros for our adventure to the 7th continent, Antarctica! Navigate through the calms of Beagle Channel, a strait in the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago as we sail towards true wilderness where wildlife abounds.

Day 2.

  • The Drake Passage is the confluence of three oceans: the Atlantic, Pacific and the Southern Oceans. It is 800km across, making the crossing from Ushuaia the shortest distance and most direct route to the Antarctic Peninsula.

  • Prepare for potentially rough waters but hope for smooth sailing as the Drake is unpredictable and always changing. The most spirited sailors consider Drake Passage a lifetime achievement. With the unique X-BOW design and purpose-built stabilizers, the Ocean Albatros will offer a smother sailing across with much less carbon emission.

  • Spend the days at sea getting to know shipmates, listening to safety briefings and insights into what excitement lies ahead.

  • Antarctic wildlife comes into view with our first sight of seals, penguins, and albatrosses. Having crossed the Drake, we will explore the sub-Antarctic islands of the South Shetland chain and be marveled by the captivating landscapes.
