Overview

​Antarctic Cruise which provides clients with the very best of the Falklands, South Georgia and the Penisula. Because of the isolated location of the islands some unique flora and fauna species have developed. The dramatic cliff coasts, the white sandy beaches and the sheltered Tussock grass make excellent breeding grounds for numerous animal species. Around 60 bird species regularly breed on the islands and several endemic species can be found such as Cobb’s Wren and the Falkland Pipit. You may even encounter the rare and remarkable Striated Caracara, locally known as Johnny Rook. A visit to a Black-browed Albatross colony is also an unforgettable experience. Five penguin species are also represented on the islands, three of which you will not find in Antarctica Rockhopper, Magellanic and King Penguins. The list of marine mammal species is extensive. Southern Elephant Seal, South American Fur Seal, Southern Sea Lion,Killer Whale, Commerson’s Dolphin and Peale’s Dolphin are seen frequently. Offshore baleen whales are seen in increasing numbers.
