ex Ushuaia (Antarctic cruises, Antarctica)

Description

Operators: Polar Latitudes and Antarctica21. Hebridean Sky (previously known as Sea Explorer) is a very comfortable 296 foot ship carrying up to 114 guests (71 on air cruise), with a maximum cruising speed of 14.5 knots. There is a library (with internet access), exercise room, bar, lounge, dining room and observation deck. An elevator serves all passenger decks.

Capacity

Activities

International expedition staff lead shore excursions and give daily lectures on board. Sea kayaking is available on all voyages, at an additional cost (basic previous kayaking experience is necessary). Camping is available on selected voyages, also at additional cost. There are limited places for these optional activities and so they should be booked well in advance.

Accommodation

Cabins are on five decks and vary little in size (from 22 to 30 square metres). They all have beds that can be configured as double or twin, a private bathroom, sitting area and ocean view through either windows or portholes. Penthouse and Veranda suites have a small balcony.

When to go

Mid November to mid March.

Most itineraries either follow or are close variants of our standard Antarctica itineraries (www.lastfrontiers.com/antarctica/itineraries).

Cruises start and end in either Ushuaia (Argentina) or Punta Arenas (Chile). Air cruise departures include a flight between King George Island (Antarctica) and Punta Arenas. The first night is spent in a hotel in Ushuaia on all cruises operated by Polar Latitudes starting in Ushuaia.

For exact details of specific cruise departures please just contact us.
