Can be expected that the Antarctic journey how incredible, really is your journey of life unforgettable, full of unexpected adventures. These magnificent sightings and amazing opportunities are within reach – this trip took me years to dream and plan, which is worth giving every minute. Use the following seven wild and fantastic adventures of Antarctica to inspire your imagination and your dream experiences, and only the world around you can give you.
1. Stumbling Upon a Group of Killer Whales Hunting Seals
One afternoon, as our voyage sailed through the narrow ice-choked Errera Channel into the Gerlache Strait, one of our Oceanwide Expedition Guides Beau Pruneau spotted a group of Killer Whales (Orcas). The captain slowed the boat for over an hour as we watched the Killer Whales train their young in the art of seal hunting – using techniques like spy hopping and wave washing. We were all in complete amazement of what we were watching with our own two eyes.
2. Camping with Penguins
I am on the 7th mainland adventure cruise and pan-sea group Antarctic expedition sailing. Since Basecamp cruises, all activities are free and we can meet every adventure. We have the opportunity to camp in the Antarctic land Kerr point; the snow digs his own grave and sleeps under the blue sky. It’s an incredible experience in itself, being nagged to join Adlee Penguins to visit each sleeping bag throughout the night to make it real magic.
3. Antarctica Polar Plunge
Surrounded by Chinstrap Penguins and a fur seal lounging on the rock beach, we took a few deep breaths and dove (or in my case, ran and fell) into the freezing sea at Half Moon Bay. It was a terrifyingly cold experience and I’ll never forget the shock I felt.
4. Kayaking Through Antarctica Wilderness
Like all the other kayaks in Antarctica is an adventure. Kayak in penguins and seals the chance to cross the iceberg beyond your childhood dreams. Johnny Clifton, the world traveler to 166 countries, said it was one of his previous lifelong activities: “I have traveled in more than 20 rivers, lakes and seas around the world, which is the top canoeing experience The adventure never touched my mind until the blue waters of blue water, the icicles hanging from the iceberg and the penguins swimming around us, and I had never seen anything in my life.
5. Penguin Heaven
Every penguin moment (and there were a lot of them!) was an adorable adventure in itself. Taking many shore walks along the Antarctic coast, we were surrounded by hundreds of friendly Adélie, Chinstrap, and Gentoo penguins that would dive, swim, walk, waddle and fall by you, undisturbed by your presence and curious if anything else.
6. Mountaineering Antarctica
The Pan-Sea Group study basecamp passengers spend a few days in the wild climbing through the tranquility and majestic mountains of Antarctica. Anna Christensen and Jeremy King are currently backpackers around the world for a year, climbing mountains in every country they visit, but not as memorable as in Antarctica and hiking. Anna told me, “Antarctica is a magical phenomenon. Standing at the pinnacle, there may or may not have climbed before, to see the 360-degree view of the most beautiful scenery is shocking.I want to go back!”
7. Embracing the Drake
Many folks fear crossing the Drake Passage on their way to Antarctica – but we had a special group on our adventure cruise that embraced the Drake and enjoyed every minute we had together on it. While others crawled into their beds, we stayed up late in the cruise lounge area, rolling back and forth with the boat and cheering when we crashed head on into the waves. The captain had issued a warning about when the storm would peak – but we took the warning as a challenge and crowded in front of the boat windows to experience the biggest waves mother nature could give us.
The exciting scenery we see and the adventures of wildlife will always be engraved in our memories, traveling all over the world with us forever. Every time you meet someone who will affect you and change your life forever; they are just as important part of the journey to picturesque landscapes, beautiful photos, and friendly wildlife you encounter. And the real adventure travel can be challenging and difficult, but always worth every penny, tears, and a drop of sweat you give. The adventures of Antarctica will encourage you to face the dangers and insist on your dreams.
