David Irwin United Kingdom February 2019

Antarctica exceeded my expectations. I have been dreaming of going to Antarctica for many years, and this was an amazing experience. I would recommend this to anyone with the financial means to get here because while I can try to describe the feeling of stepping on land and watching the animals and listening to the ice cracking, it just needs to be experienced in person.

Christine & Rollence California December 2017

We booked with Swoop because it was evident in the first phone call that Swoop knew far more about Antarctic travel than an agent recommended by friends. Read the full review

Someday, I'll tell my grandchildren that I went to a place that was so untouched by man - that it was nature at its best.

Linda Illinois February 2017

From the first moment we booked our trip to Antarctica with Swoop, everything went so well. You can read about Antarctica, people can tell you about it, you can look at countless images, but it is so much more beautiful in reality.

Patty (Patricia) Hunt United States Of America February 2020

We saw whales, various types of seals, penguins, and birds. My favorite encounter was w/ a Leopard Seal while kayaking; the seal seemed to be having fun with us, creating waves and swimming quickly underneath the water to change his position before we could snap a photo. We also saw a group of Ocra hunting another whale - it was a magical moment as the sun was setting and we had just finished a BBQ dinner / party on the back deck. Read the full review

Catherine Samuels Australia March 2019

Charlotte's Bay on day 3 exceeded my expectations with her prolific ethereal beauty, including whales frolicking and spouting at nearly every angle of the Bay, as well as vibrant, modern-sculpture like icebergs that surrounded us. We even saw an iceberg invert after seals were feeding around it, as well as an avalanche. I had to pinch myself to assure myself that I was not in heaven! Read the full review

I compliment the Swoop staff for its services all along the way through to the expedition itself.
