Drake Passage

Famed for its wild nature, the Drake Passage is unpredictable and always changing.

Be sure to spend some time on one of the Ocean Endeavour’s many outer decks soaking up some fresh sea air and feeling the breeze of the roaring forties and furious fifties – waters not yet tamed even by the most intrepid of explorers.

Your expedition team will provide insights into your exciting adventure that lies ahead. During these two days on the sea, you will have plenty of time to gaze out at the Southern Ocean, capture photos of the birds circling the Ocean Endeavour and get to know your fellow travellers and expedition team.

There is always great excitement on board when the first sighting of land appears, which with favourable sea and weather conditions will be early evening on day four.

Days 7 – 10
Sunday 1 – Wednesday 4 December 2024

South Shetland Islands & Antarctic Peninsula

Your Antarctic adventure truly begins once you have left the Drake Passage behind and the South Shetland Islands come into view, a region that has long captured the attention of explorers.

Every visit to Antarctica reveals something unexpecting or new, meaning your expedition will be unlike any other – a unique and personal experience.

During your time aboard the Ocean Endeavour, your expedition team and captain will scout for whales and seabirds and alert you to any new sightings. Enjoy in-depth explanations and lectures from your expedition team on the glaciology, history and wildlife of the region as you explore. Even more exciting will be your first land excursion – something you will never forget!

Daily Zodiac cruises and shore excursions take you to explore local bays, channels and landing sites with wildlife opportunities always at the forefront of your expedition team’s mind. Walk on beaches dotted with penguins, visit penguin rookeries and search for southern seal species, including the fearless penguin eater, the leopard seal.

Days 11 & 12
Thursday 5 – Friday 6 December 2024

Drake Passage

Your journey back across the Drake Passage provides a final opportunity to enjoy the Antarctic air. Be sure to spend some time on the outer decks scouting for whales, watching seabirds, or enjoying a presentation by your expedition team on a wide range of topics.
