1. A Dip in the Sea Ice

"Without a doubt, the most memorable moment of my trip would have to be swimming in the Antarctic Ocean! Being given the option to strip down to my boxers and immerse myself in Antarctic water (albeit geothermally heated Antarctic water) wasn’t the most appealing of prospects but I’m so glad I did it. It was a bit like trying to dip your toe into a piping hot bath while someone was throwing iced water at you. I had thought Antarctica was all about penguins and ice but there’s so much more..."
Simon Doran, Systems Manager.

2. A Whale of a Time

"We were out on zodiacs, cruising around the icebergs, when a female humpback whale and her calf swam close by. They passed under our boat and came fluking up, almost close enough to touch. Everyone immediately reached for their cameras, trying to get the best shot. I soon gave up trying to capture it on film and sat back to watch the magnificent creatures. Unforgettable."
Rosie Sneddon, Travel Consultant

3. The Never-Ending Day

"It never gets dark during the Antarctic summer. The sun sets, only to rise again a short while later. On the night we arrived in Antarctica we went out on deck after dinner as the fading light turned the mountains, icebergs and ocean an incredible shade of purple. It seemed unreal, but in Antarctica everything was new. I remember never wanting to go to bed in case I missed something."
David Nichols, Product Manager

4. The Thrill of the Chase

"One of my most abiding memories is of being ‘chased’ by a leopard seal while racing back to the ship in a zodiac – it kept pace with us easily and sometimes looked as if it might actually leap into the boat. It was a pretty scary experience as I hadn’t quite realised how big the animals are, nor how sharp their teeth look."
Kathryn Glover, Product Assistant

5. Where the Penguin is King

"Volunteer Beach in the Falkland Islands is a pristine 3km-long white sand beach backed by a grassy bank and a deep blue lagoon. This stunning location is the year-round home to a noisy colony of about 500 pairs of strikingly beautiful king penguins and their fluffy brown chicks. Seeing the most elegant and photogenic of the penguin family up so close was made all the more magical for being one of only four tourists there."
Ben Line, Travel Consultant
