Penguins in Antarctica
You’re closer to nature on a tall ship
If you love the BBC Frozen Planet you'll love to see the real places on a Tall Ship voyage. No sailing experience required.
The BBC programme includes scenes from Spitsbergen, also known as Svalbard and our tall ship Antigua is an annual visitor to these amazing Artic Islands. Going ashore is quite complex due to the likely hood of polar bears and special precautions are always taken. Highly experienced guides tell you all about forthcoming trips ashore. Guide you when ashore and point out all the interesting features. It’s like having a young Richard Attenborough onboard.
Europa spends about a week exploring the fjords and shores of these historic islands and visiting colonies of Macaroni and King Penguins. She always receives a warm welcome from the South Georgia Authorites.
Our mission is take you safely by sail to some of the remotest places on earth, our carbon footprint is the least of any ship in these waters. We really respect the awesome wonders of these unspoilt wildernesses.
Our tall ships delight in helping you understand how the sails work and you do form an active part of the crew helping the ship reach these amazing places. Most people travel on their own and we can cater for special dietary requirement.
