  • 15 Days/14 Nights
  • Special NBS rates from $12,995 $11,695 per person

Highlights: Franz Josef Land, part of the Russian Arctic National Park, is a nature sanctuary. Polar bears, walrus, endangered bowhead whales, and other Arctic wildlife can be spotted anywhere, anytime in and around the archipelago. Svalbard is a similarly protected wilderness where we find flowering tundra and tidewater glaciers.

Steep cliffs and scree slopes in both island groups accommodate enormous colonies of nesting seabirds such as dovekies, guillemots, and rare ivory gulls. 24-hour daylight allows us to exploit every opportunity for wildlife viewing in this unique polar ecosystem.

  • 15 Days/14 Nights
  • Special NBS rates from $15,295 $13,765 per person, plus free camping!

Highlights: Penguins and other seabirds abound in Antarctica’s nutrient-rich seas. In the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands you can go ashore at sites where chinstrap, gentoo, and adélie penguins come together to nest in boisterous colonies. Meeting with a curious penguin chick is an unforgettable experience.

The waters of Antarctica are also home to huge concentrations of marine mammals. Pinnipeds such as crabeater, weddell, and leopard seals are often seen hauled-out on shore or reposing on ice floes. Humpback whales, minke whales, and orcas are also commonly spotted now at the height of their summer feeding frenzy.

The Sea Spirit provides spacious suites for 114 passengers. Smaller ships like the Sea Spirit offer things big ships cannot. The Sea Spirit and its crew can adapt to conditions and wildlife, with an ability to slip into narrow waterways for better views. A limited number of guests also makes for a more intimate experience. 

Antarctic Peninsula – Land of Penguins & Icebergs

  • Feb. 6-17, 2019
  • 12 Days/11 Nights
  • Special NBS rates from $12,995 $11,335 per person, plus free camping!

Highlights: Antarctica is famous for its penguins. In the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula you can go ashore at sites where gentoo, chinstrap, and adélie penguins come together in boisterous nesting colonies. Meeting with an inquisitive penguin chick is an experience not to be forgotten.

The waters of Antarctica are also home to impressive numbers of marine mammals. Pinnipeds such as weddell, crabeater, and leopard seals are commonly seen reposing on ice floes or hauled-out on shore. Humpback and killer whales can also be spotted feeding in bountiful seas.

Antarctic Peninsula – Land of Penguins & Icebergs

  • Feb. 16-27, 2019
  • 12 Days/11 Nights
  • Special NBS rates from $12,995 $11,335 per person, plus free camping!

Highlights: In addition to the wildlife, the scenery in Antarctica is unique in the world. Tall, rugged, gleaming white mountains—covered on all but their sheerest faces by innumerable glaciers and permanent snow—rise from deep blue waters to form idyllic bays and scenic passages such as the famous Lemaire Channel.

Afloat everywhere in these protected waterways are fragments of Antarctica’s frozen surface. From billowy blankets of brash ice crackling in the wake of our Zodiacs to gargantuan tabular icebergs that dwarf our ship, ice is a dramatic and inescapable feature of any Antarctic tableau.
