Weddell Sea Explorer

Desperate to exit the city to a dream-like scape that is once-in-a-lifetime experience? Tap the explorer in you as you make your way to Antarctica. This is a journey like none other, far from the madding crowds as you travel to a scenic wonder that is truly the last tract of uninhabited land on earth. February is known for whale spotting as all migrating pods have now made it down to Antarctica's rich waters. Embark on the Oceanwide Antarctica cruise which is not just any luxury ship but a well equipped polar vessel that ensures you can reach extreme corners of the Antarctica Continent where the bigger ship struggles to and experience the outermost edge of human exploration. Our expedition- Weddell Sea Explorer will take you through an expedition through some of Antarctica’s most wildlife- rich waters. “What an adventure it was! Steeped in the legacy of the Polar exploration pioneers and rich in the wildness of a place far removed from the ravages of humans. It’s the last truly wild and, mostly, pristine continent, untouched by mankind and once I have let it into my heart, it will undoubtedly summon me back again and again.” - Sumitra Senapaty (Founder of WOW Club).

    Arrive in Buenos Aires

    Before you escape to the rugged, raw beauty of the Antarctic, enjoy the sin of gluttony and mirth in one of Argentina’s finest cities- Buenos Aires.Transfer from the international airport to the hotel .

    Kenton Palace Hotel or similar
  • Day 2

    In and Around Buenos Aires

    The day is dedicated to Buenos Aires City Tour- visit La Recoleta Cemetery, Palermo, Teatro Colon, Plaza de Mayo, Puerto Madero, San Telmo and La Boca. Get a feel of South America unplugged as you walk through La Boca, with its bright-as-bulbs colored homes, and gorgeous open bars. Enjoy the Tango show followed by dinner. Overnight stay in Buenos Aires

    Kenton Palace Hotel or similar
  • Day 3

    Antarctica- Here We Come!

    Early morning travel from the hotel in Buenos Aires to the domestic airport from where you fly to Ushuaia to begin the expedition (Flight Not Included). Later the same day, get ready to board your Expedition. Your voyage begins where the world drops off: Ushuaia, Argentina, reputed to be the southernmost city on the planet. Starting in the afternoon with immense excitement, you embark from this small resort town on Tierra del Fuego – nicknamed “The End of the World”– and sail the scenic, mountain-fringed Beagle Channel for the rest of the evening.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 4

    Path of the Polar Explorers

    Over the next two days on the Drake Passage, you enjoy some of the same experiences encountered by the great polar explorers who first charted these regions: cool salt breezes, rolling seas, maybe even a fin whale spouting up sea spray. After passing the Antarctic Convergence – Antarctica’s natural boundary, formed when north-flowing cold waters collide with warmer sub-Antarctic seas – you are in the circum-Antarctic upwelling zone. Not only does the marine life change, the avian life changes too. Wandering albatrosses, grey-headed albatrosses, black-browed albatrosses, light-mantled sooty albatrosses, cape pigeons, southern fulmars, Wilson’s storm petrels, blue petrels, and Antarctic petrels are a few of the birds you might see.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 5

    Path of the Polar Explorers

    The first sightings of icebergs and snow-capped mountains indicate that we have reached the South Shetland Islands, a group of twenty islands and islets. With favorable conditions in the Drake Passage our lecturers and naturalists will accompany you ashore as you experience your first encounter with the penguins and seals.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 6

    Enter the Antarctic

    The South Shetland Islands are a haven for wildlife. Vast penguin rookeries, beaches ruled by Antarctic fur seals and Southern elephant seals make every day spent in this amazing island group unforgettable. Sailing through the narrow passage into the flooded caldera of Deception Island is breathtaking. 

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 7

    About The Ship- M/V HONDIUS

    Plancius was built in 1976 as an oceanographic research vessel for the Royal Dutch Navy and was named “Hr. Ms. Tydeman”. The ship sailed for the Dutch Navy until June 2004 and was eventually purchased by Oceanwide Expeditions. The vessel was completely rebuilt as a passenger vessel in 2009 and complies with the latest SOLAS-regulations (Safety Of Life At Sea). M/v “Plancius” is classed by Lloyd’s Register and flies the Dutch flag.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 8

    At the White Continent

    King George Island, the largest of the South Shetland Islands, features colonies of nesting Adélie and Chinstrap Penguins, Kelp Gulls, Blue-eyed Cormorants, Antarctic Terns and Southern Giant Petrels and is home to scientific bases of many different countries.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 9

    At the White Continent

    The Antarctic Peninsula’s remarkable history will provide you with a type of excitement often only associated with the early explorers. You will be experiencing a sight which is even difficult to imagine. Apart from penguins and seabirds you are very likely to see Weddell, crabeater and leopard seals as well as Minke, killer (orca) and humpback whales at close range.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 10

    At the White Continent

    Further exploration may take you to the Melchior Island group, Cuverville Island, Portal Point, Neko Harbour, Pléneau Island and if ice conditions permit, to Petermann Island for a visit to the southernmost colony of Gentoo Penguins.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 11

    Familiar Seas, Familiar Friend

    The volcanic islands of the South Shetlands are windswept and often cloaked in mist, but they do offer subtle pleasures: There’s a wide variety of flora & fauna (gentoo penguins, chinstrap penguins, southern giant petrels). In Deception Island, the ship plunges through Neptune’s Bellows and into the flooded caldera. Here you find hot springs, an abandoned whaling station, and thousands of cape petrels – along with kelp gulls, brown and south polar skuas, and Antarctic terns. A good hike is a possibility in this fascinating and desolate volcanic landscape.

    M/V PLANCIUS Ship
  • Day 12

    Familiar Seas, Familiar Friend

    Your return voyage is far from lonely. While crossing the Drake, you’re again greeted by the vast array of seabirds remembered from the passage south. But they seem a little more familiar to you now, and you to them. You must have by now earned some sights to behold forever!

  • Day 14

    There and Back Again

    Every adventure eventually comes to an end. We arrive at the port of Ushuaia early in the morning and disembark the USHUAIA after breakfast. Transfer to the Ushuaia Airport to board the flight back home.

  • "

    I never imagined I was one day going to embark on an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula! But it’s like a dream coming true. I had to work hard to achieve this feat. I had to experience and face the perilous Drake Passage, the wildest sea in the world! Just cannot forget sailing through the stormy waters!

  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
