Get up close in Antarctica with a ZodiacAntarctica

To gain the best access to enormous icebergs, imposing glaciers and the vast penguin colonies of Antarctica, nothing compares to the flexibility of the smaller Zodiac inflatable boats.

In small groups ably supported by a knowledgeable team of naturalist guides, travellers can experience the vast Antarctic beauty as close as possible by heading out in the rigid inflatable boats known in the industry as Zodiacs. The guide will cut the engines as you cruise past resting leopard seals and stop a while so you can take a magnificent photograph. as you take hike on the continent to maybe acquaint themselves with a penguin -

The Zodiacs also allow guests to walk on the southernmost continent, where, among other oddities, they’re likely to encounter penguins. While you’re there, the National Geographic team of experts will explain not only how you should behave around these curious creatures but also tell you a little about how penguin society functions.

Antarctica and islands like the Falklands and South Georgia are teeming with photo opportunities, including the chance to snap wildlife like albatrosses, penguins, seals and whales.

 


Zodiacs are part of all National Geographic Expeditions to Antarctica. There are seven departures between January 2020 and January 2022, with prices starting at AU$14,124 per person based on double occupancy.
