If the pangs of wanderlust have hit you hard and you’re up for the adventure of a lifetime, World Expeditions is giving you the chance to embark on an Antarctic cruise with the one and only Dr Karl Kruszelnicki. The trip will be Dr Karl’s fourth and his infectious enthusiasm will make you marvel at every turn.
Crossing the fabled Drake Passage, you’ll explore a remote pocket of the Antarctic Peninsula with its spectacular wildlife and awe-inspiring vistas. Spot Adelie penguins, blue-eyed shags as well as leopard seals and a vast array of seabirds. There’s also a good chance you’ll encounter humpback and minke whales.
The unique basecamp-style program provides opportunities to explore the area by a variety of means, including kayaking, hiking/snowshoeing, climbing and zodiac cruising. For those feeling adventurous there is an option to camp on the ice, an experience which will create memories to last a lifetime. While on board there will also be photographic workshops to help you capture the natural beauty of this ice-bound land to best effect. Dr Karl is also optimistic that we can get some useful citizen science happening to collect data that will be useful for scientists.
