Falklands - South Georgia - Antarctic Peninsula

Polar Activities

Argentina

 

This is the ultimate Antarctic voyage and one of the world’s great wilderness journeys.  From Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego to the windswept Falklands, onward to the incredibly remote South Georgia before exploring the Great White Continent.

At the Falkland Islands we enjoy close encounters with breeding colonies of black-browed albatross, rockhopper, magellanic, gentoo and king penguins. Even from the harbour road in Stanley, one can see steamer ducks ‘powering’ their way down the inlet, while pods of delightfully playful Commerson's dolphins ride the bow wave of any moving boat they can find, which could include your zodiac.

We sail onwards to South Georgia, often quoted as the highlight of an Antarctic experience and the burial place of Sir Ernest Shackleton, his grave found in the hills above Grytviken. Glaciers are easily viewed along the coastline as they sparkle with dangerous beauty above the blue oceans and green valley’s below. This is an island renowned for its extraordinary abundance of wildlife. On the beaches fur and male elephant seals dominate the goings on. Over half the world’s population of elephant seals congregate here who with much noise and energy, claim their territories and parade for their harems. We explore the spectacle of Salisbury plain, home to one of the World’s largest colonies of King penguins, dotted along the shore as far as the eye can see.

We next head to the South Orkney Islands and on to the Antarctic Peninsula where we can explore the bays and penguin rookeries before sailing through the spectacular Lemaire channel hoping for an ice free passage. This entire area promises excellent whale and seal sightings with minke, fin and humpback whales and Weddell, crabeater and leopard seals often found. In the South Shetlands we hope to land at other famous sites including Deception Island, Hannah Point and Half Moon Island, all of which have spectacular wildlife and even offer the chance for an Antarctic swim; a fitting end to a truly spectacular journey.

Aqua-Firma Antarctic Expertise

The Aqua-Firma team have been exploring Antarctica for many years; guiding, driving zodiacs, delivering inspiring onboard lectures and inspiring guests of the magnificent but fragile beauty of Antarctica. It is this in-depth, on location knowledge and expertise which can assist with your choice of voyage to best match your timing, interests and budget.

When to visit

Our small ship Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctic Peninsula voyages are available Oct-March. In late October, there are huge volumes of ice and snow, a scenically pristine environment. Penguin courtship displays and boisterous elephant seal harems signify the height of the breeding season. It is an adventurous, memorable and cost-effective time to visit.

By December and January noisy penguin chicks and seal pups dominate South Georgia’s scenery and by March, as the season progresses, we continue to witness an increased abundance of whales.



Small ship voyages

Carrying between 54 and 200 passengers, these strong comfortable ships foster an  intimate atmosphere for like minded people who share a true passion for remote wild and wonderful corners of our planet. Ships vary appreciably in level of comfort from an expedition ship to a more luxurious expedition cruise offering spacious en suite cabins and excellent cuisine. Each maximises time spent off the ship with inspired daily landings, informed presentations and exploration in the company of experts.

A full complement of Zodiac craft (rigid inflatable boats) facilitate small group expert-led landings and close encounters with wildlife. Onboard  lecture programmes span subjects such as: wildlife, birdlife and marine life as well as human history, geology, and polar conservation,

Polar expertise and optional adventures

Your guides are the key to inspire and enrich your knowledge of the unique polar environment. Aqua-Firma marine scientists, guides, polar divers and kayakers have many years of in depth on location experience. Specialist knowledge on certain trips enable us to offer adventure options such as kayaking and  polar photography workshops onboard.

Our promise and your protection

Polar voyages are a major commitment for most travellers. We offer a personal and professional service with a promise that for any experience which is directly comparable, our prices are never beaten.   Detailed information is provided throughout your booking and preparation process and with our first hand experience we are always available to answer any questions, no matter how small, giving 24 hour support before you depart and whilst away.

Itinerary

19 Day Sample Itinerary

This is a sample only based upon a 19 day voyage. The final itinerary will be determined by the Expedition Team and is influenced by local conditions, like ice and weather - in particular actual or anticipated headwinds affecting crossings of the Drake Passage.

Day 1: Embarkation in Ushuaia

Your voyage begins where the world drops off: Ushuaia, Argentina, reputed to be the southernmost city on the planet, located on the far southern tip of South America. Starting in the afternoon, you embark from this small resort town on Tierra del Fuego – nicknamed “The End of the World” – and sail the scenic, mountain-fringed Beagle Channel for the rest of the evening.

Day 2: Birdlife of the Westerlies

Look out for several species of albatross, which are likely to follow the vessel into the westerlies, as well as storm petrels, shearwaters, and diving petrels.

Day 3: The Falklands

The Falkland (Malvinas) Islands offer an abundance of wildlife, easily approachable – with caution. These islands are largely unknown gems, primarily remembered for the war between the UK and Argentina in 1982. Not only do various species of bird live here, but chances are you’ll see both Peale’s dolphins and Commerson’s dolphins in the surrounding waters. A hike along the shore of Carcass Island may show you anything from breeding Magellanic and gentoo penguins to numerous waders and passerine birds (including Cobb’s wren and the tussock-bird) live here. O Saunders Island you are likely to see the black-browed albatross and its sometimes-clumsy landings, along with breeding imperial shags and rockhopper penguins. King penguins, Magellanic penguins, and gentoo penguins are also found here.

Day 4: Culture of the Falklands

The capital of the Falklands, Port Stanley has some South American traits mixed in with a little Victorian charm: colorful houses, well-tended gardens and English-style pubs. You can see several century-old clipper ships in the surrounding area, silent witnesses to the hardships of 19th century sailors. The small but interesting museum is also worth a visit, covering the early days of the settlement up to the Falkland War. Approximately 2,100 people live in the capital, where you are free to wander at will – though admission fees to local attractions are not included.

Day 5-6: At Sea en route to South Georgia

En route to South Georgia, you will cross the Antarctic Convergence. The temperature cools considerably within only a few hours and nutritious water rises to the surface of the sea due to colliding water columns. This phenomenon attracts a multitude of seabirds near the ship: several species of albatrosses as well as shearwaters, petrels, prions, and skuas.

Day 7-10: Exploring South Georgia

You are due to arrive at the first South Georgia activity site on day seven. Weather conditions here can be challenging and largely dictate the program. Over the next several days, you have a chance to visit the following sites:

Prion Island – This location is closed during the early part of the breeding season (November 20 – January 7). The previous summer’s wandering albatross chicks are almost ready to fledge, and adults are seeking out their old partners after a year and a half at sea.

Fortuna Bay – Near beaches inhabited by penguins and seals, you have the chance to follow the final section of Shackleton’s route to the abandoned whaling village of Stromness. This route cuts across the mountain pass beyond Shackleton’s Waterfall. But the terrain here is partly swampy, so be prepared to cross some small streams along the way.

Grytviken – You have the opportunity to check out this abandoned whaling station, where king penguins now walk the streets and elephant seals lie around like they own the place – because they just about do. You might see the South Georgia Museum as well as Shackleton’s grave.

Day 11: Southward Bound

There may be sea ice on this route and at the edge of the ice, south polar skuas and snow petrels may join the other seabirds trailing the vessel south.

Day 12: South Orkney

Depending on how favourable the weather and ice is, you might visit Base Orcadas, an Argentine scientific station on Laurie Island in the South Orkney archipelago. The personnel here will happily show you their facility, where you can enjoy great views of the surrounding glaciers. If a visit here isn’t possible, you might land in Signy Island’s Shingle Cove instead.

Day 13: Last Push to the Antarctic

Huge icebergs and a good chance of fin whale sightings ensure there’s never a dull moment on this last sea voyage south. Also, your best chance to spot Antarctic petrels occurs here.

Day 14 - 16: Antarctica

If ice permits, you sail into the Weddell Sea. Here colossal tabular icebergs herald your arrival to the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula. Paulet Island, with its large population of Adélie penguins, is a possible stop.

You might also visit Brown Bluff, located in the ice-clogged Antarctic Sound, where you have the chance to set foot on the Continent. In good conditions, your time in the Weddell Sea may be extended. The volcanic islands of the South Shetlands are windswept and often cloaked in mist, but they do offer subtle pleasures: There’s a wide variety of flora (mosses, lichens, flowering grasses) and no small amount of fauna (gentoo penguins, chinstrap penguins, southern giant petrels). Chinstrap penguins and Weddell seals often haul out onto the beach near Cámara Base, an Argentine scientific research station on Half Moon Island.

In Deception Island, the ship plunges through Neptune’s Bellows and into the flooded caldera. Here you find hot springs, an abandoned whaling station, and thousands of cape petrels – along with a number of kelp gulls, brown and south polar skuas, and Antarctic terns. Wilson’s storm petrels and black-bellied storm petrels also nest in the ruins of the whaling station in Whalers Bay.

You are likely to sail toward the northern parts of Gerlache Strait (in case the Weddell Sea extension is not possible) for your last landing. One option is Cierva Cove and the rugged, ice-gripped mountains of the Davis Coast.

Mikkelsen Harbour on the south coast of Trinity Island is another alternative. Here you may enjoy a gentoo penguin rookery as well as some fine scenic cruising. Conditions on the Drake Passage determine the exact time of departure.

Day 17 - 18: Crosing the Drake

While crossing the Drake, you can again expect to be greeted by the vast array of seabirds remembered from the passage south. But they seem a little more familiar to you now, and you to them.

Day 19: Disembark Ushuaia

Every adventure, no matter how grand, must eventually come to an end. It’s now time to disembark in Ushuaia, but with memories that will accompany you wherever your next adventure lies
