Day 5 On-board ship (Antarctica)

You will enter Drakes Passage at around 2am and the day will be spent making your want across this notorious stretch of water. Surprisingly the wildlife spotting on the way can be amazing with wandering albatross, Wilsons petrel and even blue whales possible.

Day 13 On-board ship (Antarctica)

Early morning arrival back in Ushuaia and transfer to the airport for a flight to Buenos Aires, where you will spend the night. We have kept this itinerary short but we would also recommend that, if you have time, you head out to an estancia to relax for a day or two. Trips to Antarctica can be hard work as you are constantly on the move and lots of people are in need of a few days' rest before returning home.
