The most remote and hard-to-reach place on Earth, the biggest dream of travellers, divers, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts. Our team takes you to the edge of the world! Sail through the Drake Passage on a sailing yacht, dive among icebergs, swim with whales, observe penguins and much more. We will make a "classic" Antarctic route, visit the most famous and spectacular points around Antarctic Peninsula
We start our expedition from Ushuaia, the southernmost harbour of Argentina. A comfortable and safe marine sailing yacht Aurora
and its experienced crew takes us across the Drake passage. The vessel is equipped with the everything necessary for a long expedition: from large fresh water tanks to modern communication and safety equipment. After four days we arrive at the Antarctic peninsula, where we spend over 2 weeks

In addition to helping you experience breathtaking adventures, we provide lectures and educational programmes
. Participants learn a lot about seals and whales, iceberg formation, ocean biology and meteorology, polar pioneers and much more.
After spending two weeks in the Antarctic peninsula we cross the Drake Passage back to Ushuaia.Small group and flexible schedule
We go in a small group of 7 guests on our sailing yacht. This allows us to control the route and to be able to change it whenever necessary. All the participants will have plenty of time to spend with wildlife, enough photo opportunities, no one will hurry you up.
