The joy of kayaking the AntarcticAntarctica

You launch from the back deck of the ship, and slowly paddle away from civilisation as you’ve known it since embarking. When you lift your oar from the water you’ll hear, well, nothing. That’s the thing about Antarctica – there are no planes flying overhead, no hum of traffic in the distance, not even the chatter of birds to fill the air. Here, the world is silent save for the gentle lap of the ocean against your kayak.

You’ll be immersed in nature’s grandeur in a landscape like no other on earth. Skim past icebergs, watch for whales breaching and glide past flocks of penguins gathered on the coldest of continents.

When you take an Antarctic cruise with Chimu Adventures you’ll be part of a small group, led by skilled instructors, that takes to the water on sea kayaks. Picking up the paddle allows you to get up close to marine life that may otherwise be startled by the sound of motors, duck into small coves and see the landscape from water level – a perspective that will give you a deep appreciation for its magnificence.


You can go sea kayaking on Chimu Adventures’ Antarctica cruises, which range in length from 10 to 21 days.

Go on, take a splash. This tip was provided by Chimu Adventures, but we’re sharing it with you because we wouldn’t mind heading off on a sea kayaking trip to Antarctica ourselves.
