The expedition was a long held dream. We were so pleased to be on a comfortable new and very environmentally friendly ship. The shell doors meant very speedy zodiac loading.
The expedition leader and team epitomised the spirit of exploration by ensuring we landed safely at amazing scenic and remote places. We enjoyed wonderful land encounters with penguins and seals. A highlight was going very far south to 68.14 degrees to see a beautiful part rarely visited. Not only the breathtaking scenery but the historic aspects at South Georgia were wonderful. visits to current and historic research stations on The Peninsula were another highlight..
The excellent lectures from highly qualified expedition staff gave a deeper understanding of the special environment we were visiting.
