Tell us about the Seaventure
We have taken more than a few cruises (on large and small ships). We saw and heard Captain Ivo almost every evening. He was very visible, approachable & informative. All of the ships staff were very friendly and helpful.
Tell us about the wildlife
Our weather was amazing and we were able to go on hikes and get up close and personal with seals, penguins, whales, dolphins and birds!
Tell us about Ushuaia
We walked about the town and did a bit of shopping. We spent several hours on horseback too!
Tell us about the expedition team
Very informative, experienced and educated in this part of the world.
Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?
The weather in Buenos Aires was 95 degrees F and the weather in Ushuaia was 40 degrees F and the weather in Antarctica was 30 degrees F. Pack wisely! Be prepared for all types of weather and situations...we were so fortunate that our weather was very nice and we could kayak and hike without wind blowing and the sun was out!!
Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?
No...This was our final continent...but there's still so much of this world to experience. I'm making plans for our next trip!!
Do you have any recommendations for Swoop, or feedback about the team?
I felt that the employees that I dealt with over the last two to three years...were helpful and gave me good info. I also was able to encourage our friends the Johnson's to accompany us on this trip!
Was there anything else Swoop could have done for you to help you prepare for your trip?
