FOCUS

Bird & Wildlife Cruise:
birds, whales & dolphins, mammals, scenery, historical sites & photography

Introduction

Found only in the Antarctic Peninsula area as an occasional vagrant, the largest and most enigmatic of the penguins, the majestic Emperor, is the only animal to breed in the harsh, cold, dark Antarctic winter. As so well depicted recently in a number of natural history films, when the Antarctic spring sun finally appears, the female Emperors return from the sea to relieve the males, who have spent the winter huddled together on the ice, incubating a single egg on their feet! The Ross Sea region is of course famous for being the starting point for the early explorers attempts to reach the South Pole, and visits are usually planned to both Scott and Shackleton’s Huts on these itineraries. 

Worldwide demand is intense for these few departures and so very early booking is normally required.
