Antarctica/Land of Exploration
A charter guest looking to cruise through Antarctica has the heart of an explorer. The land is given over wholly to scientists, explorers, wildlife, …. and a few hearty charter yachts. The charter yacht and timing are the keys to a successful trip. The yacht must be comfortable and stable enough to handle long trips at sea. Sturdy tenders, designed for extreme weather, are also a must as there are no marinas for mooring, and they will be a charter guest’s way to land.
Travel to the icy land mass is limited to between November and March, the Southern Hemisphere’s summer, but even those months can be limited by the ice and weather. By December, the midnight sun has set and penguin chicks begin to hatch. In February, whale watching is a daylong activity. But by March, the ice can begin to return.
Antarctica is one of the last developed charter destinations on the planet, and with a little planning, a charter guest can find the trip of their lifetime.
