SOUTHERN OCEAN, ANTARCTICA

It's not often we feature GO Outposts that move. Introducing the M/V Ocean Nova, base camp for adventure in Antarctica. Our 14-day Antarctic itinerary pairs a stunning sea safari aboard this boat with an air crossing over the dangerous Drake Passage between Chile and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. The first of its kind, this is the best way to experience the southernmost regions of the planet.

Once you’ve landed on King George Island, clamber aboard the Ocean Nova to explore the coldest and most remote place on earth. Originally built for the ice-chocked waters off Greenland, the Nova can easily plow through the thickest of chunks, getting you to the coldest, most remote areas on earth. Because of her size, she's able to go where other, larger ships cannot and is the strongest vessel you’ll find in the Antarctic.

Passengers on the Ocean Nova enjoy a glass-enclosed observation lounge, a spacious dining room, a bar, a library, and even a small gym for those with restless legs. With capacity for just 72 passengers, the Nova feels more like a private yacht than a cruise ship, allowing for efficient disembarkation so you can spend less time on ship and more time exploring. The Nova provides boots for wet landings (when you have to jump in the water to get to shore), as well as all the gear for different modes of exploration.

 

 
 
 
 
 

Photographers will find exquisite subjects in the icy landscapes, and anyone looking for some extra excitement can take the infamous polar plunge. Peer out of your cabin for penguins or get up close and personal with any of six types of seals that swim these icy waters.

 
 
 
 
 

You won’t be limited to the boat during your sea safari in Antarctica. There will be daily opportunities to kayak, snowshoe, and hike with the best polar guides in the business who are eager to share their passion and knowledge of this part of the world with you.
