IMMERSIVE

EXPLORATIONS

DIVE

INTO ANTARCTICA

Beyond the ship decks, Antarctica’s raw beauty beckons you to unleash your inner explorer. From kayaking through tranquil ice floes to expedition landings that challenge you to trek paths few others have before, our aquatic and land programs immerse you in the transcendent wilds of this isolated destination.

To book your immersive explorations, download the Atlas Ashore brochure below and follow the instructions on the booking form.

ON WATER

ZODIAC SAFARI | INCLUDED

Atlas takes you closer to your environment as you embark on one of the custom-made Zodiacs made for World Navigator and World Traveller. Cruising Antarctic coasts, your knowledgeable experts guide you through the continent’s many wonders. As your Zodiac driver navigates the waters, stop and listen to the natural sounds that surround you. At first, you might think it’s all silence, but if you focus, the cries of snow petrels echo in the distance. You may encounter marine wildlife while out on the water, so focus on the soft but distinct rush of water and watch for the bubbles just before a breach. This is an essential excursion that truly gives you a pure feeling of triumphant exploration.

All water and land programs operate if weather permits.

POLAR PLUNGE | INCLUDED

Connect with your wild side as you plunge into the icy waters of Antarctica, much like the seals and penguins of the continent. The moment of truth comes as you approach the edge of the platform and prepare to make the jump. But with your fellow explorers cheering you on, it’s easy to take on the challenge. And feel free to be a spectator as you cheer on your fellow explorers while they take the dive.

All water and land programs operate if weather permits.

STAND UP PADDLING | $75 per Guest, per Outing

For experienced stand-up paddlers a distinctive immersion in Antarctica happens with a stand-up paddle boarding excursion. It’s easy to admire the incredible scenery as you float atop chilly waters, facing the continent’s cliffs and peaks on the horizon.

You’ll feel a thrill run through you as you dip your paddle into the water, breaking the slush ice sitting atop the surface. Your excursion guide helps you spot marine wildlife as it passes nearby your paddle board, giving you the chance for that awe-inspiring moment you came all this way to capture. You can even pause and sit or lay down on your paddle board to gaze up at the impossibly blue sky overhead, looking for petrels, or other seabirds in the area. For added safety, a Zodiac driver follows close behind to help you on your journey.

All expedition experiences have limited occupancy and are subject to cancellation if minimum participation is not met. Excursions operate if weather permits. If you need to cancel your reservation, you may do so up to 72 hours prior to voyage departure to receive a full refund.

PADDLING | $75 per Guest, per Outing

If you’re an experienced kayaker looking for a bit of a challenge, then paddling is a more easily controlled kayak. Guided by a kayak master amid a small group, this excursion gives you the opportunity to find your personal moment amid the epic landscapes and drifting ice floes. It’s an opportunity to glide through Antarctica’s waters and perhaps come close to seals and whales as they swim nearby. Your kayak master helps you spot wildlife as you navigate the waters and gives you the chance to appreciate the wondrous beauty of these animals as you connect with Antarctica’s nature.

SEA KAYAKING | $350 per Guest

Alongside a kayak master, experienced kayakers have the opportunity to set off through Antarctica’s unspoiled waters. Our kayak masters help you navigate the ice floes as you make your way through the water channels that bring you close to nature. With their guidance, you can safely cruise through the waters, perhaps even coming close to penguins as they dive from the ice floes into the sea. Sea kayaking offers a unique point of view of The White Continent as each paddle stroke takes you further from the ship and deeper into the heart of Antarctica. As you rush through the waters with your kayak, the astonishing blues and whites of the icebergs take your breath way. But take a few minutes to be still as well, because that’s when incredible moments can take place, like the possibility of a whale breaching the water’s surface mere feet away from your kayak.

Excursion is charged one time for as many outings as possible based on weather conditions.

ON LAND

EXPEDITION LANDINGS | INCLUDED

Your expedition guide may lead you to dedicated points for the best views and instruct you on how to properly interact with wildlife at a safe distance so that you leave only footprints behind. Pique your curiosity with field interpretations on location.

All water and land programs operate if weather permits.

CAMPING | $500 per Guest, per Outing

You could spend a night camping in Antarctica for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will never forget. This is one of the few encounters that truly brings you as close to the continent and its raw beauty as possible. Expedition guides build the camp in the afternoon as you spend a day exploring the grounds. Before settling in for a night in the camp, you have one last chance to grab a hot meal and shower on board. Once the Zodiac brings you back to shore, it’s a truly wild experience as you and your fellow adventurers are left with required gear, drinking water, and a few extra layers of clothing for warmth.
