Discover Drake Passage
Begin in Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city, on the windswept island of Tierra del Fuego before embarking Polar Latitudes’ state-of-the-art expedition ship Island Sky to begin crossing the Drake Passage. This intimate ship has spacious, well-appointed suites (some with balconies), stylish common areas and ice-strengthened hulls. Also aboard are knowledgeable guides, naturalists and expedition crew members.
As you edge closer to the White Continent, you’ll learn all you need to know about the wildlife, history and geography of Antarctica. You’ll even have the opportunity to participate in Polar Latitudes’ exclusive ‘Citizen Science’ programme, which could see you tracking whales, surveying penguins or mapping phytoplankton in the name of science, with the data you help gather sent to research facilities like NASA.
