February 1 - 3 - South Georgia
Flexibility in this area is a must. Many of our leaders have been to South Georgia numerous times and, if the weather is in our favor, may offer a landing before breakfast or even after dinner. Call at some of the many islands, bays, and coves where you will see outstanding birdlife and elephant and fur seals close at hand. The following is a list of places we plan to visit on South Georgia; some of them are pending final government approval.

Naturalists recap your memorable visit to South Georgia and introduce you to the history, geology, and wildlife of the Antarctic Peninsula and its surrounding islands.

February 7 - February 10 - Antarctic Peninsula
As you cruise the waters of the Antarctic Peninsula and its adjacent islands, landings are dependent upon weather and ice conditions. There is also the possibility that you may visit a research station and witness the scientific activities conducted by the multinational community of scientists working there. The expeditionary nature of this voyage precludes guaranteeing specific stops; in the past we have visited the locations below. This list serves as a guideline only of the places you may experience.
