Aurora Expeditions has an Antarctic cruise perfect for Australian time poor travellers. The cruise operator’s shortest voyage, the Antarctic Explorer Express, is a 9-day journey departing Ushuaia on 10 February 2024, aboard the purpose-built, small ship, Sylvia Earle.
Aurora Expeditions says travellers are guaranteed maximum adventure and more time off the ship with two to three landings per day (including a minimum of 3.5 days exploring the Peninsula). The Antarctic Explorer Express itinerary will start with a true rite of passage crossing the Drake Passage one-way and returning by air, saving two days of travel after its Antarctic exploration.
Aurora Expeditions’ highly experienced Expedition Team each day will design a journey of discovery and enrichment with multiple Zodiac cruises and shore excursions each day capitalising on wildlife opportunities and amazing experiences.
With days of 18 to 24 hours of daylight, passengers will have plenty of time to explore secluded bays, learn of the astonishing history and spot mesmerising icebergs and glaciers, all while watching out for the extraordinary wildlife from whales and penguins to seals and amazing birdlife. This Express voyage also offers the opportunity for sea kayaking, snorkelling or paddling activities.
