High Season 2018 Voyages
January marks the height of summer in Antarctica with long days for exploring, warm temperatures and some of the most stable weather. In February, hungry, inquisitive penguin chicks who are starting to fledge dominate the rookeries, while whale sightings and leopard seal predation reaches their peak. In December the austral summer is in full swing, bringing warmer temperatures and longer days.
