Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic has announced the addition of two new departures to its Antarctica 2016 season, with additional “Journey to Antarctica: The White Continent” departures scheduled for November 6 and November 16.
The tour was created to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the first citizen explorer voyage to Antarctica led by Lars-Eric Lindblad. The two new departures will take place aboard the National Geographic Orion.
The 102-guest ship will follow the 14-day “Journey to Antarctica: The White Continent” itinerary. During the trip, guests will encounter penguins, arctic birds and whales, and have the opportunity to kayak among icebergs. Zodiac cruises will sail past leopard seals in their natural habitat, while land hikes will be guided by an expedition leader, eight veteran naturalists, a National Geographic photographer, a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, and an undersea specialist.
Rates for “Journey to Antarctica: The White Continent” begin at $13,360 per person based on double occupancy in a category one cabin. Guests on the two additional departures will also receive international economy roundtrip airfare between Miami/Santiago, and charter airfare roundtrip between Santiago/Ushuaia.
