Loved the entimancy of the Hebridean Sky. All staff made you feel at home. Food very, very good! Absolutly would go on Hebridean Sky again....loved it loved it loved it!!!

Tell us about the Kayaking

This was my favorite activity we went out 7 x's and each encounter better then the next. Ashley and David 2 Canadians (our guides and instructors) were just super nice very professional and most knowledgeable. Felt very safe and it was so fun gliding along amongst floating ice. Absolutely would do again and totally recommend to anyone physically capable to go Kayaking.

Something Else?

Love to go back and bring my wife this time. Went with my Brother and we both agreed on our return it was a phenomenal life experience. So unique. The best part was the Ship was small and very well staffed and appointed. 144 guests and 76 special. Sign me up I would go again. Many thanks!

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

Did not need to pack trekking poles as the were supplied.

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

Nope you did a great job! Only beef I would have is the extra fees for using credit cards very high in my opinion and unnecessary.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

No it was way better experience then I had hoped for.
