Antarctic Fly-Sail Expedition
Fly-in Fly-out options - skip sailing across the Drake Passage!
The best of all worlds – an intimate up-close Antarctica experience on an Expedition Sailing Yacht combined with the convenience and time-saving travel of Flying across the Drake!
Explore Antarctica on an Expedition Sailboat where we will encounter penguin colonies, breaching whales, and leopard Seals. Each day is something new – we take in what Antarctica gives to us, which the flexibility of a small yacht allows us to do. We will visit penguin colonies, watch many types of seals. Explore from eye level with zodiac tours and kayaks. Plus if the weather allows anyone interested can sleep a night ashore!
We will be reminded of the brave souls who have come before us when we see remains of old whaling stations. If we are lucky we may even get to visit an active station while in the peninsula.
No matter what we do and no matter what the weather, your time in Antarctica will be one of a life time. Full of fantastic photos, unforgettable evening zodiac rides through the ice, Sculpted icebergs floating past. It is unlike any other place on the planet.
At the end of your trip – relax and digest yoru experience with two nights at Lakutaia Lodge in Puerto Williams, Chile, a remote town on Navarino Island facing the famous Beagle Channel. From here explore the flora, fauna, and native Yaghan history of the island by visiting the museum and exploring excellent half day and full day hikes.
