5 reasons to explore the Weddell Sea

  • Limited to only a handful of unique voyages each year, explore the little visited, distinct and ice-choked Weddell Sea
  • Renowned for its vast tabular icebergs which provide fantastic photographic opportunities
  • Historically significant - it was here that Shackleton's ship Endurance became trapped in ice, precipitating the greatest rescue story
  • The chance to see an Emperor penguin - the Weddell is the only place where they breed so far north
  • Explore large penguin rookeries, including volcanic Paulet Island with its 100,000 pairs of Adelies
