Shoulder Season 2017 Voyages
November is an exciting time of year to be in Antarctica as it's the start of summer, when everything seems to be waking up from the long and dark Antarctic winter. By March, at the end of the season, keen whale watchers get their best chance for close encounters, while young penguins are fledging and learn to swim.
The good news is that there is still plenty of cabin availability if you're considering heading to Antarctica this winter. November is early season and great for lots of ice, while by December it's high summer in Antarctica.
