Tell us about the Kayaking

Quite strenuous for us older folks. However you have the choice of opting out. Personally I decided to only go on one excursion per day, unless the weather and scenery was exceptional.

Tell us about the Sylvia Earle

The food was excellent and plentiful. We opted for the Captains cabin so we had a living room and walk in closet! To bad that the health club was closed as a massage or two would have been the icing on the cake!

Were Swoop right to recommend Aurora Expeditions?


Tell us about Zodiac excursions

The Zodiac excursions were wonderful. Zodiacs are the perfect craft to visit these remote islands. Loved the visit to the whaling station at Conception Island. We saw an excellent documentary film on the whaling industry before our visit.

Tell us about the expedition team

All the team members were wonderful. I loved listening to Jack, the historian. He is very animated and articulate.

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

If you are planning on kayaking bring some thin waterproof gloves. The gloves I had would not fit inside the poggies and as I was constantly taking cell phone pictures my hands were gloveless and consequently cold.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

The icecap is immense and amazing. We need to do everything we can to protect this remote part of the world.
