Antarctic Specialist

My inaugural cruise to Antarctica was in 2004, the experience was beyond all of my expectations. Magnificent glaciers, beautiful icebergs, impressive mountains and the wildlife encounters all contribute to the allure of the Antarctic continent. Walking in amongst the screeching penguins colonies, visiting research stations and the fascinating stories told by our expedition guides of the history of the explorers kept me awe-struck throughout the entire cruise. In 2012 I was fortunate enough to head south agian. I was captivated again by what the continent has to offer. On this second trip I experienced Antarctica from a different perspective; kayaking close to icebergs, camping on the ice and finally plucking up the courage to do the polar plunge. Antarctica is the last true wilderness we have remaining, a sacred place of peace, pristine purity, global co-operation, scientific observation and preservation. Undoubtedly the holiday of a lifetime all delivered on an ice platter!
