Kayak Antarctica! This is simply the most humbling and powerful place on earth, and a sea kayaking holiday in Antarctica is an experience not to be missed. Every day holds new wonders, from face to face encounters with whales, penguins and seals to serene paddles among brash ice and through narrow fjords dwarfed by enormous Antarctic icebergs.

These polar kayaking adventures take place on an Antarctic cruise aboard the mother-ship, Greg Mortimer, home to our fleet of sturdy plastic kayaks. Antarctica is truly a wild place of indescribable beauty. If you choose to paddle with us in Antarctica, you’ll be a member of a small select paddling group that is accompanied by a dedicated kayak guide. You’ll have the option to kayak every day that conditions permit­—or even twice a day—while you are in the Peninsula. These are small-ship expedition cruises rather than fully programmed tours, and each Antarctic sea kayaking trip is guaranteed to have new and exciting experiences.
