Day 1 : Sail from Buenos Aires 1700
Day 2, 3, 4 : At Sea
This is “our time”, the discussions, the presentations, the questions, the thinking. Exploring new ideas and concepts with games. Exploring old concepts with new application. We do not mind if you slip away for the spa, a swim, but we shall be enjoying the passing sea, occasional whales, (with Ken’s vast experience and knowledge).
Day 5 : Ushuaya, Argentina Tendered 09:00-21:00
For sheer physical beauty, the Land of Fire is hard to beat. To view the wonders of the region’s amazing fauna and flora, board the aptly named ‘End of the World Train’ on a scenic 12km adventure to the pristine Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego.
Day 6 : Cape Horn, Chile Cruising 06:00 - 08:00
Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, is the most isolated place in the Americas, and Cape Horn is its southernmost point. These craggy cliffs and windswept shores are stark, rugged beauty personified.
Day 7 : Schollart Channel, Antarctica Cruising 11:00-13:00
You are certain to leave with amazing memories, and pictures, as you cruise through Schollart Channel. Take in the mesmerizing sights of massive ice flows, humpback whales, waddling penguins, leopard seals in their natural, and somewhat extreme element.
Paradise Bay, Antarctica Cruising 14:00-16:00
This name aptly reflects the stunning beauty you'll find here, just as the clear waters beautifully reflect the spectacular mountains, such as Rojas Peak, Bryde Peak, and the Petzvol Glacier. Within these waters we may see Minke whales feeding and Gentoo penguins curiously observing us from the rocky shores.
Gerlache Straight Cruising 17:00-19:00
A number of geographical anomalies around this channel make these waters among the most plankton-rich in the world. You’re likely to see a profusion of whales feeding in the rich ecosystem, which is a sight you’ll not soon forget.
Day 8 : Elephant Island, Antarctica Cruising 14:00-18:00
This tiny island in the Weddell Sea plays a role in one of seafaring history's most legendary exploits. When the brave crew of the Endurance, led by explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, was trapped in the ice during a 1914 polar expedition.
Day 9 : At Sea
More of Our Time for discussions, exploring our knowledge of whales and penguins.
Day 10 : Port Stanley, Falkland Is Tendered 08:00-17:00
If you’re a birder or photographer – or aspiring to be either – the Falklands delivers in spades. See if you can spot a flightless Steamer Duck. Your cruise wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the museum chronicling the 1982 Argentinian invasion.

Day 12 : Puerto Madryn, Argentina Docked 07:00-16:30
