Observing the longest and largest standing iceberg A76 currently in the world. It was so big I couldn't capture it on my phone camera. The overall experience of visiting such pristine and beautiful continent was absolutely amazing and awesome.

Were Swoop right to recommend Oceanwide Expeditions?


Tell us about Zodiac excursions

Truly enjoyed them after my first "panic attack" when I got nervous with the ocean swells. However, with the help of fellow passengers and my travel companions, I overcame my fears, and then I continue going to the Zodiac excursions. In some of the excursions, only a regular driver will be available. These regular drivers didn't have the same knowledge as the expedition team members. It's best to have enough expedition folks that knows the history, and local information of Antartica during the Zodiac excursions.

Tell us about the expedition team

Awesome, knowledgeable, friendly, polite, caring and very helpful. Kudos for Pippa, Palin and Marcos, the doctor, Ursula, the bird expert. I will definitively consider coming back to another Oceanwide expedition, with the high quality of great customer service.

Great housekeeping staff, excellent food and service, very clean. Yes, will consider choosing this ship again.

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

Definitively wear layers, and bring comfortable clothing for on board activities.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

Yes,, I consider myself an Antartica ambassador and even more environmental conscious than when I took the trip.

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

Continue using the same company and staff, great professional staff.

How prepared and excited for Antarctica did you feel?

Super excited to achieve my 6th continent for my 60th bday celebration. It was great meeting people all over the world.
