Inspiring. Exhilarating. Remote and spectacular. Antarctica! Join us for an amazing adventure and up-close encounters. Experience the wild grandeur of the White Continent in a more efficient, expedient way. On this new itinerary, bypass the traditional Drake Passage, crossing both ways on a 2-hour flight from Puerto Natales to Antarctica and discover all of the highlights – without sacrificing the extra time. Enjoy the penguins with their endlessly amusing antics—gabbling in their rookeries, bobbing by on a blue berg, or catapulting onto the shore. Witness an abundance of marine mammals, with expert narration by a dedicated Undersea Specialist. See icebergs of epic proportion. Explore by kayak, take Zodiac cruises and walks ashore, and even opt to brave a polar plunge – or you may decide to relax onboard instead, and have a massage! Our passionate expedition team will illuminate each facet of Antarctica through their enthusiasm and knowledge―and learn from the onboard photography experts to capture this amazing experience with stunning photography. Travel with us aboard the 148-guest National Geographic Explorer, a fully stabilized, purpose-built expedition ship with an ice-reinforced hull, and advanced navigation equipment, and be assured by the 50+ years of polar experience at your service. This is sure to be a once-in-a-life adventure with the UCLA Alumniand one not to be missed!
