Let's venture to the bottom of the world!
9-Night Ushuaia Roundtrip
See most of the Antarctic Peninsula in the shortest number of nights. This luxe-adventure expedition packs a punch and has the possibility of taking explorers through the likes of Deception Island, Cuverville Island, Cierva Cove, Paradise Harbour, and more. Crossing the Drake Passage from Ushuaia, Argentina, into Antarctica, you can accomplish this feat very few have achieved, and on this ocean voyage, you do it twice. The Shetlands Islands, almost entirely ice-covered and teeming with penguin rookeries and seals, beckons you to explore. Our Zodiac safaris get you close to the action as you watch for whales and other sea life breach the Antarctic seas. Within the Antarctic Peninsula, it's captain's choice, where the master of World Navigator will take you to the best areas for wildlife viewing that include up to 8 landings on the continent.

DRAKE PASSAGE NAVIGATION
Navigating the intrepid Drake Passage is made for the boldest of explorers. Petrels and albatrosses that glide across the skies guide the way. To witness its tremendous power makes the journey to Antarctica all the more triumphant. The Drake Passage leads you from the southernmost region of the Americas to the Antarctic Peninsula, the northern point of The White Continent.
SOUTH SHETLAND ISLANDS, ANTARCTICA
The South Shetland Islands are entirely silent and serene. Natural wonders like the black and white effect of Deception Island and the tops of massive glaciers sitting atop the water's surface inspire awe and admiration even from the most veteran explorers. The stillness of the Shetland Islands evokes a sense of wilderness left to be discovered. Along the rugged cliffs of Brown Bluff, the exposed portion of a glacial volcano, you can hike to a backdrop of expanses of ice and ocean. Dotted with Adélie penguins and leopard seals, the rocky shoreline provides a challenging path to trek the environment and explore among the wildlife. The whimsical birds waddle about, inviting you to give in to your inner child and play along.
DAY 5, 6 & 7
Captain's Choice ports of call add to the sense of adventure and an element of surprise. Your ship's master will sail around changing weather conditions as needed and take you to the best areas for wildlife viewing. Captain's Choice ports include Deception Island, Paulet Island, Brown Bluff, Neko Harbor, Paradise Bay, Cuverville Island, and Goudier Island.
DRAKE PASSAGE NAVIGATION
NAVIGATING CAPE HORNE, CHILE
Don't let the nickname the "End of the World" fool you. Although it lies on the southernmost tip of South America among the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, Ushuaia is far from the end of any adventure. Where the Andes meet the Beagle Channel lies a lively town ready and waiting to take you on the thrill ride of a lifetime.
