Tell us about the wildlife
So much wildlife literally everyday and on every excursion, even in the Drake Passage we saw tons of wildlife. Too cool and definitely exceeded my expectations!
Tell us about Zodiac excursions
Zodiac excursions were very fun, you literally feel so close to everything around you and can truly experience Antarctica. They’re safe and cursing around with your new boat friends definitely added to the overall experience.
Tell us about the Seaventure
Beautiful, safe, fun ship!! Everything is immaculately clean and the common areas are abundant for you to meet people or hang out with staff and friends. Cabins were spacious and fully loaded. The food was 10/10 and they never stop feeding you which was awesome. The stabilizers made a huge difference in the hectic waters, even when the ride was rocky I never felt unsafe on this ship.
Tell us about the expedition team
I could not say enough about my expedition team and there are no words for how wonderful each and every one of them were. Nate was an excellent team lead, he kept us busy and always worked with the ever changing conditions to make sure we got our full experience. My kayak team Brian, Nicole, and Santi were too fun and we had a blast paddling with them! Everyone else involved is SO knowledgeable, always around to make us laugh and teach us about the incredible wonders of Antarctica, and each person on the team added something different to my experience. Shoutout to all of them- you guys are the best!!
Don’t think twice about this trip, it’s out of this world and you won’t regret it! I’m so happy I went!!
