Tell us about the wildlife

Yes, enjoyed getting very close to seals who were resting on icebergs. Some wonderful photos. Professional photographer was part of the expedition team.

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

Wonderful, enjoyed them immensely. Felt completely safe. Special was the crunching sound of ice as we cruised through the calm blue waters and up to the face of glaciers.

Tell us about the expedition team

All very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Maria, the team leader, was particularly approachable and helpful. Mattias knew everything about birds.

Tell us about the Hebridean Sky

Wonderful ship. Our cabin was superb with sliding doors, balcony with table and two chairs. Food excellent; varied, innovative and very tasty with big choice. Yes, I would happily choose this ship again.

Tell us about {area.title}

Antarctic peninsula. Seeing huge blue icebergs, the calm waters and varied wildlife.

Something Else?

All catering and housekeeping staff very friendly and efficient.

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

Try to include South Georgia if you can. Read books beforehand on the history of Antartica plus the various explorers. Also read a bit on the current scientific research bases there. Ask Swoop’s advice on all matters, not matter how small.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

Made me appreciate the vastness and silence of such a huge continent, which can potentially alter the face of our world, as we know it.

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

My sister, Jackie, had direct contact with Swoop and found John and Ange wonderfully helpful and resourceful.
