You chose a/an 66 Degrees South Fly Cruise experience. How was that experience?

Thank goodness we flew over the Drake Passage rather than sailing it. The whole experience was wonderful.

If Swoop arranged some of your travel before/after your voyage. How did we do?

We did not use Swoop for these services.

How were your experiences on the zodiac excursions and shore landings?

All the shore landings were great. I especially enjoyed stepping on the continent and loved seeing and being among all the wildlife. The icebergs were fascinating and gorgeous. The staff was full of information, and they were friendly and helpful.

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

Do it! I was worried about my feet being cold in rubber boots, but the provided boots are warm and comfortable. I packed too many pairs of warm socks.

Anything else? Tell us anything you’d like to share that we forgot to ask! It’s ok to leave this empty too :-)

Swoop correctly told us what kind of electric plug to use on the boat. It might be helpful to include the info that a different plug is needed in Chile. Swoop is thorough, friendly, helpful, and personal. I would recommend Swoop to anyone.
