Adventure of lifetime

Travel with the power of wind

During the summer season, Antarctica is under almost 24-hour daylight. Penguins are busy tending to their rookeries and diving for fish, seals rest peacefully on huge ice floes and whales make spectacular jumps out of the water. Numerous seabirds calls add to the lively Antarctic sound.

About the voyage
We have created a whole new travel format to Antarctica!

It implies a combination of a flight to/from Antarctica and a crossing the Drake Passage. It turns out to be an ideal trip for those who have been dreaming of sailing through the Drake Passage, however are not ready to do it twice.
For those who do not like to cross the Drake Passage at all or feel strong enough to do it twice we also have an offer!

Get ready to observe the significant nature of Antarctica: shining icebergs, funny penguins, great valleys and gorgeous whales!
Ushuaia, Argentina
Punta Arenas, Chile
scroll to the left
Ushuaia, Argentina
The southernmost city on Earth, is located on the shores of the Beagle Channel, on the island of Tierra del Fuego and this is where our voyage to Antarctica starts and ends.
On the first day of the voyage, participants will arrive on board the Eldorado, settle in their cabins and get to know the ship and the crew. After a welcome word from the captain, the crew will conduct a safety briefing and assign the participants to their watches.
A Drake Passage crossing can truly be in your bucket list as you can feel Drake Shake as well as Drake Lake there. Whatever the weather may be, it requires coordinated teamwork of all crew members.
Drake Passage
Yankee Cove
Next we'll visit Greenwich Island and the beautiful Yankee Bay. The American navigator Nathaniel Palmer discovered and described the amazing site in 1820, when he sailed his ship Hero near the polar continent and around the South Shetland Islands, looking for sheltered beaches for his seal-fleet. Here we’ll see several thousand Papuan penguins. There are also the remains of whale bones as a reminder of the heyday of whaling in the Southern Ocean (1906-1925).
Half Moon Island
Deception Island
Enterprise Island
Melchior Islands
British Antarctic station Port Lockroy
Orne Bay
Punta Arenas, Chile
Cuverville Island
Lemaire channel
Half Moon Island is an island in the eastern part of the Livingstone Islands, South Shetland Group. The name comes from its unique shape. Weddell seals and sea elephants often roost on the shore here, and a colony of Antarctic penguins (about 3,300 breeding pairs) nests higher up the hill. Seabirds also love the place: Antarctic terns, skuas, blue-eyed cormorants, gulls and Wilson's capercaillie can be found here. The Argentine polar station Cámara is situated in the south-west of the island.
Deception Island is a part of the South Shetland Islands. Its flooded caldera is known as one of the best natural harbor of this region. There are few animals here because of the volcanic activity.
The small island of the Enterprise holds the secret of the wreck of the whaling ship Gouvernoren: only the prow of the ship towers above the water. Whaling was active here between 1915 and 1930, and some remnants of this activity are still visible on the island's beaches today.
The Melchior Islands are a group of 16 snow- and ice-covered islands in the Palmer Archipelago. They were first mapped during the 3rd French Antarctic Expedition led by Jean-Baptiste Charcot in 1903-1905. Here you can see colonies of penguins, whales and seals swimming near the shore, as well as incredibly beautiful large icebergs.
Port Lockroy station is the most visited tourist destination in Antarctica. The mountainous scenery, rich wildlife and historical heritage attract lots of travellers. This British polar station has now been converted into a museum and a post office. It even has its own colony of Papuan penguins.
Orne Bay was first described by the Belgian Antarctic expedition led by the navigator Gerlache in 1898. It is a rocky bay with steeply sloping mountains, which tops are covered with snow profusely even in summer. Papuan and Antarctic penguins and Weddell seals can be seen here most often.
Punta Arenas is one of the southernmost cities on Earth. It is located on the coast of the Strait of Magellan. It is an ideal starting point for exploring Antarctica: PUQ International Airport is located here, with regular daily flights to King George Island.
Cuverville Island combines both high uplands and a sprawling beach with a large colony of Papuan penguins. The colony has around 6,500 breeding pairs, the largest nesting population of these birds in the entire Antarctic Peninsula. From here you can see the 'gallery' of icebergs and Minke whales come to feed in the nearby Errera Channel.
One of the most thrilling moments of our voyage is the passage of the Lemaire channel. 11km long, 150m deep and 700m wide, this channel is surrounded by high mountains with glaciers. A complex current system often brings large amounts of icebergs and sea ice into the channel, making it temporarily impassable to ships. Seabirds, humpback whales and minke whales often appear on the surface of the water.

About experience

I'd like to share my impressions from an Antarctic sailing expedition in 2022. As I told my friends that I'd like to SAIL to Antarctica (and I don't have any licenses and only a very little sailing experience), there were 2 opinions, either "Oh, cool!!", or " You're crazy!!". Now I can say that both were right. It was a really cool, but a little bit crazy expedition. To sail through the Drake's passage – it's a unique experience! As a reward after 4 days you see the shore...

We could visit a several research stations, islands with penguin colonies, sea leopards and, of course, the whales. We were lucky to sail with a very professional crew - they made it possible to sail through the iceberg field. That made us feel to visit an other world in all shades of blue.

The night watch, the Southern Cross overhead, the rumble of glaciers crumbling in the dark and the whales puffing their fountains around you... It's an experience you probably won't get anywhere else.

It was a unique experience: I don't think there are too many people in the world who have ever travelled to Antarctica on a sailing ship. I think it is probably the most vivid and memorable experience of my life.

Sailing expedition to Antarctica
testimonials
I’m travelling a lot since my childhood. I saw the geysers of Iceland, deserts of Mongolia, landscapes of “Lord of the Ring” in New Zealand, waterfalls of La Reunion, Bahá’í Gardens in Israel, lakes of Canada, bears of the Arctic, old timers on the roads of Cuba, volcanos of Kamchatka and many other fascinating places of the world. But the trip to Antarctic in February 2022 is difficult to exceed, actually impossible. Extraordinary experience with fantastic people on the sail boat. It is like a trip to another planet full of pinguins, seals, whales, dolphins and seabirds. As the backstage for them are the breathtaking landscapes of ice mountains and meditation peace. And as a company – small family of sailors, who shared with me the night shifts, ice swimming and pancakes (mmm, our cook – it is a separate topic:)) middle of the nowhere. And the worst thing about it – I wish to do it again even more, than I wished before (it was my dream since 20 years).
