Sail Date: Dec 2018

There are not enough words to describe Lindblad's trip from Antartica. Arriving in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Transiting to Ushuaia via charter. Four hour catamaran cruise through the Beagle Channel. Safety, logistics and timing were impeccable in a very dynamic weather environment.

National Geographic Explorer is a class 1 A ice breaker. Peter Wilson is an experienced expedition leader. When you are at the end of the world, it was important to have confidence in the staff making daily decisions.

Everyday was an excursions into the land of penguins, seals, whales and immense glaciers, that dwarf anything you think you know. And learn we did. There were 2 passengers for every naturalist, who had diverse specialty interests which they shared with us.
