Sailing – Drake Passage 

Named after Sir Francis Drake this stretch of water between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula has numerous myths and legends connected to it. The convergence of Pacific, Atlantic and Antarctic Sea’s cause a rough ride on water and those prone to sea sickness will have to take their pills on this day. However, the extraordinary seaworthiness of MS Fram ensures you a safe and comfortable passage and we encourage you to join our educational lectures en route. The experts on Antarctica marine life will brief you in the presentation rooms.

At Sea or a Late evening landing. 

Depending on the weather we will make our first landing on the Antarctic Peninsula or also can make it the next day. The air gets crisper and colder once we have crossed the Antarctic convergence.

Landings on various Islands – Marine life 

The calmer seas of Antarctica and a good weather will ensure that we have on an average 2 landings per day which will take us closer to the distinct marine animal life on the continent. Penguins, Seals and Humpback whales will make their presence felt and make sailing on these days the most exciting on the sea.
