Tell us about the wildlife

We saw all of the animals I was hoping to see :). We loved hearing the ‘belching’ elephant seals and watching the baby penguins chasing after their parents. Having whales feeding right next to our kayak was the best.

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

The zodiacs provided a chance to get closer to wildlife and the icebergs. They were well run and always safe.

Tell us about the expedition team

So knowledgeable and always friendly. It was clear they loved what they did and loved to share their knowledge with you. We really enjoyed having meals with the various guides and learning more about them and what they do.

Tell us about the Hebridean Sky

The cabin was huge and very well kept. The ship felt luxurious and the food was to die for - despite our best intentions to not overeat, everything looked and tasted so good we couldn’t help it. We would definitely recommend this ship. The crew was also so friendly and we loved getting a special karaoke performance from them toward the end of the trip.

Tell us about the Kayaking

OMG. Kayaking was the highlight of our trip. I can’t imagine going again without a kayak option. We loved every second and always felt well guided and safe.

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

Swoop’s travel guide was right on. Follow their advice and you’ll be fine :)
