Antarctica

Antarctica cruises are the ultimate
remote wilderness experience

To walk on its distant shores, crowded with nesting penguins or boisterous elephant seals is an exhilarating and awe-inspiring feeling. This polar region remains one of the earth’s last great frontiers, with boundless landscapes of ice and snow, towering mountains, massive glaciers and unique wildlife.

An Antarctica cruise will take you through pristine waterways filled with marine wildlife, beneath the massive cliffs of snow-white glaciers, and up-close to mysterious, blue-tinted icebergs.

Our cruise Antarctica cruises offers a range of different voyages and itineraries, and a variety of on-shore and sea-based activities. The itineraries are designed to get you off the ship and into the wilderness as much as possible. You will get the chance to go ashore and walk amongst the penguins and seals, visit historic sites, and cruise by Zodiac around the base of ethereal icebergs. Some expeditions offer camping on the ice, kayaking, climbing or scuba diving. Our experienced Antarctica staff can help you choose an Antarctica cruise to suit your specific interests and budget.

Explore the Ross Sea on a cruise and visit explorer huts and areas of abundant wildlife including penguins, whales and other marine mammals.

What Clients Say

“A trip of a lifetime has become a reality for us. This journey was all that we imagined, and more – a wonderful exhilarating experience. Our every need was catered for – during the booking process, at arrival and departure points and during the cruise. The staff of the boat helped to make this trip an experience of a lifetime, one, to never forget. Thank you!”

“The Antarctic trip was absolutely fabulous….All land and sea expeditions were excellent with attention to both safety (native fauna, flora and human) and to finding spectacular scenery in the water and in the icy surrounds! It could hardly have been better photographically. Terrific library and information sessions…”

“Natural Focus took care of all our bookings and transfers and everything went so smoothly. My second trip to Antarctica with Natural Focus – a once in a lifetime trip….again! An expedition, not a cruise. Killer whales and humpbacks swimming around our zodiacs. Huge colonies of nesting adelie, gentoo and chinstrap penguins with their chicks.”
