Is diving or snorkeling with seals and penguins in chilly Antarctic waters one of the things on your bucket list?
If so, Waterproof Expeditions may have just the right trip for you.
The company is offering a cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula and the Weddell Sea aboard the 54-passenger, ice-strengthened Polar Pioneer cruise ship from February 25th to March 7th, 2018. On that cruise will be award-winning nature photographer Scott Portelli.
Last year, Portelli won an Honorable Mention in the “Action” category of National Geographic’s Nature Photographer of the Year competition for his photo of sea turtles eating jellyfish.
Rates for the cruise — excluding round-trip airfare — start at US$9500/~8006 Euros per person in a triple cabin. There’s also an extra $975/~822 Euro surcharge for polar diving and/or a $600/~506 Euro one for snorkeling.
For more info about the cruise, check out the Waterproof Expeditions website. (We’ve also heard rumors of a “Special Offer” consisting of free airfare from home to Antarctica, which you may want to ask about.)
