Tell us about the wildlife

Unreal! Above and beyond what you can expect. An orka swam right next to us and then peeked up to look at us. A whale spouted next to someone in my kayak group and it scared the heck outta me.

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

Yes I felt safe. The cruise chasing whales and seeing the ship wreck.

Tell us about the expedition team

Outstanding! Very friendly. Liz is great and funny!

Tell us about the Kayaking

Fin and Sean were the leaders of the kayak group and they did an excellent job. Yes I would recommend. I'd love to send them an additional tip $ if possible. I didn't get to doing it on the boat.

Tell us about the Ocean Adventurer

Food was excellent for being in Antarctica. Loved the ham for Christmas. I would choose that ship again... it feels like home to me. Hot tubs!!

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

Come with an open-mind and prepare to be flexible based on weather.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

I feel closer to the earth and how wonderful it is. We need to take care of it and the animals.

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

No, they seemed on top of things pretty much. Only weird thing was I had Tennessee holding a cruise for me, then it disappeared when I called back in time and that was frustrating, but then it came back and I got it.
