Tell us about the wildlife

The wildlife was incredible. Landing right next to penguins and viewing leopard seals up close was unbelievable.

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

The Zodiac excursions were phenomenal and we always felt safe in them.

Were Swoop right to recommend Oceanwide Expeditions?


Tell us about the expedition team

Saskia, charlotte, pipa, George, Alexis, rose, Gonzalo, Erin, Sasha, martin, lotti, katrina, chloe, Neal, and of course Szymon(!!) were all fantastic and need a bonus! They truly made the expedition safe and exciting, always going above and beyond our expectations. Could not give enough praise to them.

Tell us about the Hondius

Oh yeah! The cabin was awesome and the food was incredible (11/10). Hearing Michael's greeting before every meal and wishing us a bon appetit was the highlight and always was very animating. The kitchen crew led by Gaurav were so accommodating to our dietary needs and made it so we were always well fueled for all of our expedition activities.

Something Else?

The hotel crew led by Michael did an amazing job and always ensured all our needs were met. Wonderful people!

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

Don't buy your own boots, unless for expert technical mountaineering, because the muckboots they provide are more than enough for all activities.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

Yeah, you can go anywhere with great people around you.

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

Provide more info about the boots required for technical mountaineering and also tell passengers that the wifi needs to be purchased.
