Antarctica Private Expedition Cruising


Arctic Kingdom is pleased to offer the best of private adventure yachting to the Antarctic. Longer trips to cross the Drake Passage one way or round trip or sail to South Georgia are possible for those with 3 to 4 weeks by sailboat or 2 to 3 weeks by motor yacht. To visit the Antarctic in only a week or two, it is possible to fly into a scientific base on the Shetland Islands. Your sail boat or motor yacht will be waiting to allow your group to spend the entire time in the Antarctic around the islands, icebergs and wildlife. Each itinerary is custom built for the voyage duration and passenger interests and typically includes the best of Antarctic wildlife such as numerous penguin colonies where you can view the adelie, chinstrap, marconi and magellanic penguins. In addition to the famous penguins, there are many seals that call the Antarctic home including the huge elephant seals, fur seals and occasional lone leopard seal. The opportunities for bird watching in the Antarctic are spectacular as Albatross and Giant Petrels may soar overhead while terns dive into the seas below. Arctic Kingdom specializes in adventure sports and can provide full support for scuba diving or snorkeling in the safety and comfort of a drysuit, as well as kayaking, camping, hiking, and skiing. Whether watching Orcas go by or looking into the eye of a lounging humpback whale, we will always do our best to get you up close for personal encounters that will last a lifetime. Many of our itineraries will include visits to some of the world's largest historic whaling and sealing stations, as well as the opportunity to visit sites where you can literally retrace Shackleton's footsteps through easy going to extended and overnight hikes. Arctic Kingdom specializes in new and novel itineraries. Beyond the initial flight into the South Shetland Islands, private flights further into the interior to visit Emperor Penguin colonies, luxury base camps and even a visit to the South Pole are all additional options that may be added upon request. We look forward to crafting a personalized itinerary for your voyage to bring the best of icebergs, whales and penguins, history, science and stunning scenery all together with great activities with the world's most experienced filmmakers, photographers and expedition leaders as your guides to this wonderful frozen continent.
