Yampu Tours has a limited availability, in select categories at 50% off, of our October 30th, 2016 Shackleton Centenary departure through the Falklands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. This 22 day excursion will take you through the southern ocean for wildlife spotting opportunities including Albatrosses, Prions, Petrels, whales and dolphins. Explore King Haakon Bay, the historic launching point of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s traverse, where you may see elephant seals, fur seals and king penguins on the beach. On South Georgia’s exposed and rugged north coast visit the island’s largest King Penguin colony if conditions permit. Continue through the Scotia Sea and watch as the icebergs become more and more plentiful.
Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo Penguins abound, and Weddell, Crabeater and Elephant Seals are often found hauled out to rest along with predatory Leopard Seals and the aggressive Antarctic Fur Seal. Minke and Humpback Whales are frequent visitors in the late season and Orca sightings are also common.
