Overall, how was your trip?

You chose to do {category.title} on this voyage. How was that experience?

Of the ten opportunities there were to kayak, I did eight in and around South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. We were very lackey with having had good conditions to do so. But what an experience. Everyone was great on the water, even those with lesser experience. The guides ensured that we could fulfill our dream of Kayaking in the afore mentioned locations. The other two opportunities I passed on because I wanted to dedicate full time on the Continental landings.

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

Yes. DO IT. You will not regret it. A successful trip is subject to weather conditioned for the most part though. My twenty three days trip to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctic Peninsula might be long for some people but for me it was perfect.
