Imagine waking to the sound of a whale expelling air and water as it gently surfaces only metres from your ship.  Imagine stepping out into onto your balcony on a crisp, Antarctic morning to watch as the whale flips back into the water, disappearing into a mystical world below.  Beyond, a backdrop of towering white icebergs.  Imagine anticipating the day ahead ... stepping ashore amidst thousands of penguins and waiting to see if any will approach.  Or cruising by the rugged shoreline and spotting seals lazing upon the rocks, or perhaps  sea lions raucously announcing their dominance.  

In Antarctica, with phones turned off and the rest of the world miles away, you'll remember what it's like to just be.  Here, you can't help but soak in your surroundings and stand in awe of the majesty of the mountains and icebergs.  You'll wonder how the early explorers could possibly take on such a harsh and unforgiving continent and you'll realise how truly incredible Mother Nature really is.

Words can not do Antarctica justice.  It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most, and a life-changing experience for some. 

Antarctica... this is where you feel truly alive!
