Tell us about the wildlife

Loved it! Lots of penguins, whales, and some seals! Got more and better pictures than expected :)

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

Loved getting closer to the whales!

Tell us about the expedition team

They were all amazing! Ali married us on the ice, and we appreciate her working with us! The professional photographer also took pictures of our wedding ceremony and they all look fantastic! We appreciate them going above and beyond for us :)

Tell us about the Plancius

Cabin was actually bigger than I thought. I loved that we each had our own closet and that is was clean. Food was way better than I thought it would be. Love the variety and always having a vegetarian option. Yes, I would choose this ship again.

Something Else?

Had a fantastic time! We will consider this ship for a potential future arctic trip!

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?

If you want good pictures of animals invest in a camera with a zoom lense that goes to 250mm at least. Some people had a point and shoot non zoom camera and they regretted not investing in something better.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

No. I try to be environmentally conscious already.

Do you have any recommendations or feedback for the Swoop team?

Nope. You all did great!
