Trip report: Antarctica (March 2011)

Guided by Sam Woods and Pablo CervantesThis was a custom tour.

This was to be my first time in Antarctica and I could barely wait. Much hype has been written about Antarctica and all of it is true: amazingly approachable wildlife, jaw dropping scenery like nowhere else on Earth, in one of the last true great wildernesses on the Planet. We experienced all of this firsthand (time and again), from penguins at our feet, Antarctic Minke Whale passing right underneath our small Zodiac, icy channels littered with huge blue-toned icebergs, and clean white snowy mountains with penguins peppered around the bases of them. Time and again we were greeted by spectacular scenes and exciting experiences that can only be offered by the “White Continent” that truly is like nowhere else.
