Antarctica Cruise

Jump to last reply

We just returned from our amazing trip to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica. WOW! We boarded our ship the Sea Spirit with Quark Expeditions on Nov. 18th in Ushuaia, Argentina and set sail. Our first day was at sea and filled with lectures preparing us for our adventures. We had the most fabulous naturalists on board, each one had their own specialty. We learned about the geography, wild life and history of each place we were headed. First stop, Falkland Islands. Zodiac ride to hike on land, We see Gentoo, King and Rock Hopper Penguins. Lots of birds and Commerson;s Dolphins. The next day we are in Stanley, Falkland. Great town with a wonderful museum. Our next 2 days were at sea on our way to South Georgia where we will spend 4 days in different locations around the island. If you are making the trip to Antarctica don't miss South Georgia. While Antarctica might be the crown, South Georgia is the gem stones. The wild life is astounding. The scenery remarkable. During our travels we saw 7 species of Penguins, many different types of seals and birds and of course a few whales. Learning about the history of this area was also so special. Our next destination is Antarctica. We start at Elephant Island, move on to the South Shetland Islands and the final culmination is stepping foot on the Antarctic Peninsula. Our day in Primavera Springs was quite spectacular. We had blue skies, snow topped mountains, icebergs everywhere and a Minke whale playing around our zodiac. Another highlight of our experience was getting to do the Polar Plunge. Wow, cold but worth the experience. Just to let you know, Quark Expeditions did an incredible job. We had an outstanding expedition leader, Cheli. Truly the best guides and the best ships crew. Our food was delicious and our activities were home grown and fun. I highly recommend this trip to those that love adventure and seeing the world.
