The seventh continent beckons travellers with its promise of snowy plains and unparalleled wildlife, but many fear the (in)famous Drake Passage crossing. But that is no longer the case! Travel aboard our Antarctica Bridge sailings and get set to fly straight to King George Island, just a 2-hour sail from the Antarctic Penisula. Skip the Drake Passage and spend your days soaking up the wonderful world of Antarctica, not popping seasick pills.
Your Antarctic adventure begins as soon as you arrive in Punta Arenas. Enjoy meeting your fellow explorers during an evening briefing and welcome dinner before travelling the next day by private BAE146 aircraft to King George Island, where Silver Explorer and your life changing voyage await.
