Group Trip Breakdown
Day 1: Embarkation
Today marks the start of your gay group trip to Antarctica. After relaxing in Ushuaia, Argentina, you will prepare to board the MV Plancius. We’ll then set sail towards the Beagle Channel.
Days 2 and 3: Drake Passage
The following two days will be spent crossing the Drake Passage, where the South Atlantic and Southern Ocean intersect. Here, we’ll see a variety of native birds, including Petrels, Albatross, Southern Fulmars, and Cape Pigeons. Look out for icebergs as we approach the South Shetland Islands.
Days 4-8: Antarctica
These days will be spent sailing and exploring beautiful Antarctica. We’ll pass numerous islands including the Melchior, Brabant, and Anvers Islands. Yet more wildlife-watching is on the agenda too, as penguins, seals, and gulls are all native to the area. Should you be stationed on the deck, you may be fortunate enough to see a Humpback, Minke or Fin Whale. For the adventurous amongst you, optional kayaking and camping activities are available. After an exciting few days you’ll have the chance to relax with a beer in the world’s southernmost bar, and do some souvenir shopping should you so wish.
Days 9 and 10: Drake Passage
After exploring incredible Antarctica with your fellow LGBTQIA+ travellers, we’ll return through Drake Passage. Once again, keep your eyes peeled for beautiful native birds.
