Antarctica, Falklands & South Georgia with Dick Filby and/or Bruce Pearson aboard – Save ££££s
We currently have four departures booking for the ultimate bird and wildlife itinerary, on the best ships, with the very best guides and staff onboard. Dick Filby will be on the November 2013 and January 2014 and 2015 sailings. Bruce Pearson, one of the best bird and wildlife artists, will be onboard the November 2014 and 2015 sailings. The overall species list should be similar for both departures each season. November is spring in the region, the beaches of South Georgia are filled with elephant and fur seals in addition to millions of penguins including the majestic Kings. Landings are not allowed at the Wandering Albatross breeding islands before Christmas however.
The penguin colonies in Antarctica are also bustling with fresh adults recently returned from the sea, nest building, egg-laying and hatching their first chicks. The November 2014 voyage currently has an early booking discount of £500pp, and you can save 5% on the remaining voyage price by paying 50% of your balance with 31 days of your deposit. From January onwards, the whale numbers start peaking, with Humpbacks in particular becoming common in the Antarctic Peninsula. The January 2015 voyage with Dick gives you a chance of winning your berth back if you book by 30/6/14! Much better odds than the lottery. You can also save 5% on the voyage price by paying 50% of your balance with 31 days of your deposit. We also include a fantastic day’s birding in the Tierra Del Fuego National Park on the day of sailing, for our January departures.
