15-day last-minute Antarctica cruises

We suggest that our tourists arrive in Santiago de Chile a day earlier to have a good rest after a long flight before our Subantarctic adventures begin. A pre-cruise night is not included in the price of the itinerary. Still, we highly recommend the Holiday Inn Hotel due to its most favorable location in the airport terminal.

Our expedition will start in the early morning at the airport of Santiago de Chile, where we will take a transfer flight to the Falkland Islands. Minimal days at sea means more days for photography with World Photo Travels Guides Mike Reyfman, Dimitry Arkhipov, Marco Grassi, and Svein Wik. After a short landing in Punta Arenas in Patagonia, we’ll arrive at the starting point of our cruise. Welcome to Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands! Take your time to explore this fantastic city. Visit the Falkland Islands Museum, the Governor’s house, a cathedral with an impressive whalebone arch outside, a war memorial, quality gift shops, pubs, and views of shipwrecks in the harbor. In the afternoon, you will be transferred to the pier, where we will warmly welcome you aboard the deluxe expedition ship M/V Sea Spirit. Get comfortable in your home away from home for an extraordinary adventure.

Breakfast, Dinner

As we sail east towards South Georgia, we can witness incredible wildlife. We will also cross the Antarctic Convergence, the biological boundary of the Southern Ocean.

Don’t lose your time aboard! Attend the most interesting briefings and lectures from our expert staff and prepare for your arrival in South Georgia.

This cruise was designed for amateur photographers of all skill levels, so use this chance to make new friends, exchange your photo experience and attend our photography master classes. Discussing ISO and exposure is always better in our cozy bar, restaurant, or lounge.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

South Georgia is the best place on Earth for wildlife and landscape photographers. We will take you to great locations for the best light. The archipelago is home to hundreds of thousands of king penguins, which makes South Georgia the best spot to photograph these beautiful creatures. We plan to visit the most picturesque sights, such as Gold Harbour, Cooper Bay, Drygalski Fjord, and other great places. For example, the beaches such as those at Salisbury Plain and St. Andrews Bay, where over 100,000 elephant seals and three million fur seals jostle for space among innumerable penguins.

The bountiful waters surrounding South Georgia are also inhabited by an increasing number of whales. The historical whaling station of Grytviken is now home to the excellent South Georgia Museum, managed by the South Georgia Heritage Trust. This is also the final resting place of Ernest Shackleton, the legendary polar explorer.

However, our route and exploration opportunities in South Georgia heavily depend on the weather conditions we encounter. Our experienced captain and expedition leader decide the itinerary and continually adjust plans as conditions and opportunities warrant. You can be sure that the best possible advantage will be taken of the circumstances presented to us by Nature in this wild and remote corner of the world. We take every safe opportunity to visit this amazing place and take the best wildlife photos.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

It is time to head back toward the Falkland Islands. However, our adventures are not over yet. We will pass the remote, seabird-covered pinnacles known as Shag Rocks on the way (get your cameras ready!) There is also time for festivities such as the Captain’s Farewell Cocktail and the end-of-voyage slide show. We will share our impressions, review all the great photos we’ve taken and enjoy a friendly atmosphere of like-minded fellow travelers.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Our adventure finishes in Port Stanley. We disembark after breakfast and provide a transfer to the airport. Have a safe flight to Santiago. We recommend you explore the wonderful capital of Chile and spend more time here. Now when the first emotions have subsided you will have time to look back to your unforgettable Subantarctic experience and maybe to make plans for your next polar adventure.

What type of weather should I prepare for on a 21-day last-minute Antarctica cruises?

When planning a polar cruise, it is important to be aware of the varying weather conditions that can be encountered. The temperatures in the polar regions are typically near freezing, but the extended daylight hours, with 18-24 hour days, can make it feel milder. Some passengers have even reported feeling comfortable enough to wear a t-shirt. However, it is important to note that fog and white-outs, as well as other adverse weather conditions, can also be present and should be taken into consideration when preparing for your trip.

Single supplement fee waiver for solo travelers on last-minute Antarctica cruises?

Solo travelers have the option to participate in our Request-Share program which matches them with another solo traveler of the same gender to share a cabin and save on the single supplement fee. If a cabin-mate cannot be found, the single supplement will be waived. It is important to note that solo travel in Antarctica is seen as a personal experience, and many travelers enjoy the freedom and flexibility that comes with traveling alone.

What are the additional expenses not included in the last-minute Antarctica cruises?

Airfare to the starting and ending points of the cruises is not included, but we do offer flight arrangements for those who want comprehensive planning. All passengers are required to have comprehensive travel insurance with a minimum coverage of $200,000 for Antarctica. Insurance is not included in our Antarctica tour packages. Some passengers may need to purchase additional outdoor clothing before the trip, which is an important part of the planning process. A good quality parka is included in the cost of the expedition, and waterproof boots are provided as needed. Please review the packing list provided by our staff and follow the guidelines.
