Antarctica 21 Air-Cruises M/V Magellan Explorer

Antarctica deluxe gay cruise Travel in the footstep of explorer Ernest Shackleton to the extremes of the Southern Hemisphere! Visit the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia aboard brand new Magellan Explorer. Enjoy views of spectacular mountains and towering icebergs, and visit extraordinary snowy landscapes and remote penguin rookeries.

Antarctica is an ecological wonder that has bewitched explorers, scientists and voyagers alike for two centuries.

This fascinating territory contains more than 90% of the earth’s land ice, which transforms it into the largest fresh water reserve on earth. Among the main species that make up marine Antarctic fauna are whales, seals, penguins as well as a variety of sea birds.

Your adventure to the seventh continent will allow you to meet these incredible creatures while enjoying the indelible scenery of mountainous glaciers and roaming icebergs.

Antarctica’s matchless beauty and extreme climate conditions make this one of the most exotic destinations in the world.

A trip to Antarctica is considered one of life’s most exciting adventures. Often travelers are finally reaching their 7th continent when traveling here. As a traveler to Antarctica, you are also joining a very elite club. Only about 35,000 people a year get to visit the White Continent. The number of companies operating there is very limited and every ship that disembarks travelers is limited to just 100 people ashore at a time. Tourism in Antarctica is also very young. The first tourists went in the 1960s and 1970s but regular tourism only began in the late 1980s.

One of the reasons travelers are often hesitant to take a trip there is the Drake Passage, the body of water between South America’s Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands. It is true that the Drake Passage can have some of the choppiest waters in the world. Our trip to Antarctica will avoid those waters by FLYING from Punta Arenas, Chile to King George Island, Shetland Islands, avoiding the dreaded Drake Passage. At the finish of our trip, we sail from the Antarctica Peninsula toward the east to South Georgia Islands and then west to Ushuaia, Argentina, again avoiding the roughest section of the Drake Passage.

Join a group of Coda travelers aboard the newly built Magellan Explorer and become one of the lucky few to experience amazing Antarctica.

Strong and agile, Magellan Explorer has been developed from the ground up as the ideal platform for Antarctica21’s air-cruise operations. Several international polar expedition experts have contributed to the design of the ship. Working with designers, engineers, and naval architects, they developed a wide range of technical solutions designed to enhance the expedition experience of guests.

Antarctica gay cruise from Punta Arenas, Chile

Day 1: Start of the Air-Cruise
Our staff welcome you in Punta Arenas, Chile, before 2 PM. Transfer to your hotel and attend a mandatory briefing. A welcome dinner introduces you to the local gastronomy as you meet fellow adventurers.

Punta Arenas is a city near the tip of Chile's southernmost Patagonia region. A sprawling metropolis on the edge of the Strait of Magellan, Punta Arenas defies easy definition. It's a strange combination of the ruddy and the grand, with elaborate wool-boom mansions and port renovations alongside urban sprawl. Set at the bottom of the Americas, it is downright stingy with good weather – the sun shines through sidelong rain.

 

Flight to Antarctica

Day 2: Scheduled flight to Antarctica
A two-hour flight takes you from Punta Arenas to King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. Explore the area before boarding a Zodiac to embark your expedition vessel.

The BAE-146 aircraft was manufactured in the United Kingdom by British Aerospace (which later became part of BAE Systems). It is a high-wing aircraft with very short runway requirements, which makes it particularly suited for landing and take-off in Antarctica. The aircraft is expertly operated by Aerovias DAP, which has more than 20 years of experience flying in Patagonia and Antarctica.

 

Exploring Antarctica

Days 3-5: Exploring Antarctica
Cruise between the South Shetland Islands and the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, sailing along ice-filled fjords and among spectacular icebergs. Each day, disembark by Zodiac and explore the landscape together with expert polar guides.

No journey is the same as flexibility is the key to success in Antarctica. The Expedition Team sets the voyage route to take advantage of the ever-changing opportunities provided by Nature. You will explore several spots in the Gerlache Strait that offer the best possible overview of the varied Antarctic environment.

 

Antarctica gay cruise - Elephant Island

Day 6: Elephant Island
Sailing north, we hope to stop at Elephant Island. Elephant Island is an ice-covered mountainous island off the coast of Antarctica in the outer reaches of the South Shetland Islands, in the Southern Ocean. Its name was given by early explorers sighting elephant seals on its shores. It was here that the crew of Shackleton’s Endurance found refuge while he and five handpicked men carried on to South Georgia. While the stormy conditions of this area rarely allow a shore landing, you will see the island from the ship.

 

Gay cruise to Antarctica

Days 7-8: Sailing to South Georgia
As we sail northward, our historian and our naturalists offer a series of presentations. There is time to socialize in the ship’s lounge, while keeping an eye out for the region’s abundant birdlife.

 

Antarctica gay cruise - South Georgia

Days 9-11: South Georgia
The island of South Georgia is a diverse landscape of majestic mountains, massive glaciers, grassy uplands and deep fjords. Visit the former whaling outpost of Grytviken, where you may pay your respects at the simple grave of Ernest Shackleton. At St. Andrew’s Bay be overwhelmed by the sight of 150,000 king penguins. At Cooper Island, the nesting home of thousands of black-browed albatrosses, see a large colony of macaroni penguins. If the weather is favourable, visits are also planned at Fortuna Bay, Salisbury Plains, Prion Island, and Elsehul Bay.

 

Antarctica cruise

Days 12-14: Sailing towards South America
As the ship heads to South America, the program of presentations continues. Use this time to enhance your understanding of the region and its history.

 

Antarctica gay cruise - Beagle Channel

Day 15: At sea and Beagle Channel
Approach the South American continent and sail along the Beagle Channel. Take in the beauty of Tierra del Fuego and Navarino Island as you make your way to Ushuaia.

 

Antarctica gay cruise - Ushuaia, Argentina

Day 16: Ushuaia, Argentina
Arrival to Ushuaia, where your journey ends.

Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world and the gateway to Tierra del Fuego National Park and Antarctica. Home to magnificent scenery, a former prison, blustery winters, and a few glaciers, there’s lots of options for adventurous activities. This former penal colony is now a big tourist town, so you’ll find lots of hikes, tours, ski trails, and boat trips to fill your days.

Food at the end of the world isn’t too bad either, as traditional Fuegan cuisine includes grilled local lamb and fresh seafood from the surrounding waters. Another one of the area’s big draws is the wildlife, so take some time to check out the sea lions, penguins, dolphins, beavers, and amazing bird life while you’re here.
