Overall, how was your trip?

The general itinerary was great, but we found the extra activities such as kayaking and camping to be the most memorable. I liked the idea of the closed group for kayaking since it did seem to take a while for people to get comfortable, and I could not imagine having to repeat that process every outing. The scenery kayaking through some of the harbors seemed out of this world. We also saw orcas on multiple occasions with the pod coming right up to the ship. One pod was even hunting a seal. It was all very exciting!

In one sentence, what did you think of Antarctica? Did it live up to your expectations?

Yes, the trip felt like we were in a nature documentary. Wish we had more time!

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

We had the best time in Antarctica! We were most impressed by the ship operator's staff and Hebridean Sky crew. Everyone was so knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The food onboard was great, and we were thankful that the staff made signficant efforts to accommodate different dietary restrictions. Communication with Swoop pre-expedition was great. The staff answered all of our questions promptly and even gave us recommendations for some activities around town and in Tierra del Fuego. All in all, we would highly recommend!
