Day 1 & 2:
Depart Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina in the late afternoon. Spend Day 2 at sea, steaming east towards the Falklands (Malvinas), keeping an eye out for whales and dolphins along the way.
Sight the dramatic glaciers and snowcapped peaks of the Falklands (Islas Malvinas). Explore the privately owned outer islands of the archipelago, home to countless seabirds and several species of penguin. Watch for Peale's and Commerson's dolphins riding in the waves created by shore bound Zodiacs. Onshore, explore the colorful community of Stanley, the Falklands' historic capital.
Continue south towards South Georgia, Prion Island, and Gold Harbor for southern elephant seals and King, Macaroni, and Gentoo penguins. Revel in the wide range of landscapes of South Georgia, including mountains, grasslands, glaciers, and fjords. Pay tribute to Shackleton's grave at Grytviken, a former whaling station.
Reach the South Shetlands and finally, the Antarctic Peninsula, home to thousands of seabirds, seal colonies, vast penguin rookeries, and feeding whales. Discover Deception Island, a sunken volcanic caldera, and the welcoming thermal springs of Pendulum Cove. Cross Iceberg Alley and make land at beautiful Paradise Bay or Neko Harbor. Some voyages visit Port Lockroy, an old research base that has been transformed into the world's southernmost museum/post office.
Cross the Drake Passage back to Ushuaia after a last recap and breakfast.
