Snorkel in Antarctica

Aurora Expeditions is delighted to announce they will be offering passengers the chance to snorkel in Antarctica this season. 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.

With a longstanding tradition of pushing the boundaries, Aurora Expeditions was also the first cruise company to offer activities such as scuba diving and camping in Antarctica. This latest innovative activity option is led by our expert polar diving guides from diving specialist Waterproof Expeditions, and utilises state of the art equipment including specially designed Waterproof© Snorkel-Drysuits, gloves, hood, fins, mask, and snorkel. Passengers will be provided with all of the training and equipment they need to experience Antarctica from this truly unique angle.

Passengers who take part will enjoy the opportunity to snorkel daily (weather dependant), taking delight in sheltered bays, off shore islands and secluded ship wrecks which make for spectacular wildlife viewing.
