Highlights include kayaking (in ANTARCTICA!), camping without a tent (in ANTARCTICA!), having a penguin staring at me for half an hour while I was just sitting up in my sleeping bag, watching 6 orcas circling a small iceberg to hunt the seals lying there, probably scared out of their minds. The captain STOPPED the boat while we watched transfixed for half an hour.

Overall, it was a fabulous trip, something I had dreamt of doing since the late 1960's. Financially, I have only now been able to do it and I was absolutely thrilled by the whole package and experience. A personal experience of exploration and learning which I will always treasure.

When the weather was good the landings were absolutely great. One morning we made a before sunrise landing to watch the penguins and seals and it was terrific. The expedition leader was also good by switching the journey to go to Falklands and not to waste the last 3 days waiting out bad weather in South Georgia.

I spent an amazing time on the Ocean Adventurer. The entire experience was amazing. The scenery in Antarctica is beautiful beyond belief. Incredible and intimate wildlife encounters. The staff and expedition team did a wonderful job making this trip an unforgettable experience. The food was excellent. I highly recommend this once in a lifetime trip.

Crossing the Drake passage, lectures on the wild life found in the area and then actually getting to see the animals. Visiting Deception Island, setting foot on the continent for the very first time. I enjoyed my time on the Hondius, amazing staff, Karolina, & DJ, and fellow ship mates.

Very good indeed, saw everything we expected to see, we were lucky to be onboard with very like-minded people. Most magical moment was waking up to the Antarctic ice flows. VERY GOOD surprise with the closeness to the animal life (though would have liked to have been closer to the many humpbacks we saw!
