We waited 3 years to do this trip to Antarctica, because of Covid, and we can’t say enough good things about the handling of our booking by Georgie, she really went over the top for us. Our Antarctic adventure with Quark via Intrepid was FABULOUS. We were looked after very well, our safety on the shore expeditions via zodiacs was always exemplary.
January ...read more was a great time to go as there was plenty of wildlife to see, penguins galore with their chicks, whales with their young, elephants seals, leopard seals and copious quantities of birds. The scenery, even though it was black, white and grey along with splashes of true “ice blue” in the glaciers and ice burgs was magnificent. We were able to walk on the 7th continent twice on our first day after crossing the Drake passage at Orne Harbour and again at Neko Harbour along with a zodiac cruise, something we were looking forward to doing but not expecting to be able to do. The ship “Ocean Adventurer” was basic but comfortable, food was tasty, well presented and there was plenty of it. Can’t recommend Global Journeys, Quark & Intrepid highly enough. Anyone looking for an exciting, mind blowing adventure this is it.
