Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica
One of the real highlights of an Antarctic cruise is getting out on the water in small Zodiac vessels, the ideal way to get up close to the icebergs, wildlife and marine life.
Head out on the water in small groups, getting up close to leopard seals basking on an iceberg, or watch as penguins leap from shore into the ocean to fish. You'll be accompanied by expert Expedition staff, whose expertise range from marine biology to Shackleton's historic explorations of the continent. These guides will teach you more about your encounters with the wildlife, or the history of the area you're in, ensuring you get the most out of your time here.
