Antarctica & the Weddell Sea

Admired by all, visited by few. This limited-edition voyage will take you to the depths of the most extraordinary continent in the world. As Scenic Eclipse threads its way through the ice choked Weddell Sea, marvel at waters deemed to be the clearest on earth. Pods of whales breach, and pristine snow petrels soar above.

Day 3  Buenos Aires > Ushuaia
Your journey into wonder begins as you fly from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, known as the southernmost city in the world, where the crew will warmly greet you as you board Scenic Eclipse. Settle into your handsomely appointed suite and acquaint yourself with the luxurious facilities of your Discovery Yacht. Toast the start of your voyage at the welcome cocktail reception hosted by the Captain who will introduce your expert Discovery Leaders and their team. Set sail and cruise through the Beagle Channel and admire the dramatic views of the Andean mountains of Tierra del Fuego from the comfort of your private verandah.
Day 4  At sea
Relax and enjoy the amazing facilities of your floating resort as you cruise towards the Antarctic Peninsula. An entertaining presentation by the Discovery Team in the state-of-the-art theater will build up the excitement for what’s to come or choose to relax in your suite and watch the live streaming on your TV.
Day 5  South Shetland Islands
As you reach the calmer waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, be greeted by the snow-capped mountains of the South Shetland Islands. Populated with large rookeries of gentoo and chinstrap penguins, this is the site where Ernest Shackleton and his crew survived the harsh winter of 1916.
Day 6-10  Discovering the Weddell Sea
The Weddell Sea is as mesmerizing as it is extreme. Wind your way through dense ice floes and magnificent tabular icebergs, enjoying the eerie stillness and grandeur. Stand on your balcony, listening for the haunting cry of the Weddell seal welcoming you to their kingdom. Known as one of the toughest mammals on the planet, they live further south than any other mammal year round. Watch out for other wildlife such as crabeater seals, Adélie penguins, and numerous species of whales. Over the next five days, the experienced team onboard Scenic Eclipse will navigate through the ice, showing you this unique and inspiring region.
Day 11-14  Antarctic Peninsula
Your expert Captain and crew will navigate some of the most beautiful waterways which may include traversing the stunning 7-mile-long Lemaire Channel where steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage just 5,250 feet wide at its narrowest point. Enjoy the chance to visit areas alive with wildlife, such as penguins, seals, and whales. You could explore the remnants of a derelict whaling station and a vacant British base or climb to the rim of a volcanic crater. Your experienced Discovery Team Leaders will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day.
Day 15-16  At sea
Delight your palate with the extensive range of dining options onboard, or have a butler serve you your meal in-suite. Say farewell to your exploration in the icy lands and sail heading north to the continent of South America. Share memories of your experiences with new-found friends.
