“Antarctica continues to be the most popular and in-demand region for Atlas Ocean Voyages,” shares Atlas Ocean Voyages President and CEO James Rodriguez. “We look forward to once again positioning all three expedition yachts in the region for the season, providing travelers with many options to explore with under 200 fellow travelers on board.”     

On board Atlas Ocean Voyages’ expedition yachts in Antarctica, guests will explore a range of polar expeditions with options ranging from 7 to 18 nights. Most expeditions sail roundtrip from Ushuaia, Argentina, while others offer the option of 7-night Drake Express expeditions departing from Punta Arenas, Chile. Every voyage includes a pre-cruise hotel night stay in Buenos Aires or Punta Arenas and private roundtrip charter air flights for your convenience. Plus, explorers will enjoy a complimentary Pre-Expedition Cultural Immersion to Tierra del Fuego or A True Taste of Chile. During the journey, guests will experience captivating landings and Zodiac safaris that unveil the pristine wonders of the Antarctic wilderness, expertly guided by Atlas Ocean Voyages’ seasoned expedition team of field experts, passionate guides, and knowledgeable naturalists.
