This unique experience will allow passengers to see Antarctica in a completely new dimension, witnessing wildlife and scenery unlike any other place on earth. Through crystal clear waters adventurers will discover the amazing mobility and speed of penguins entering and exiting from the ice, marvel at the beauty of sculpted icebergs below the water and also witness marine life such as crustaceans, isopods, starfish and nudibranchs.
