Ushuaia, Argentina lesbian cruise

Day 1 - Tuesday, November 01, 2022
Ushuaia, Argentina

Arrive and embark in Ushuaia, Argentina—the world’s southernmost town. Explore the quaint town filled with shops, restaurants and an award-winning museum. Alternatively, consider a day trip to nearby Tierra del Fuego and its popular "Train at the End of the World." Embark the ship in the afternoon where you will be greeted by your Olivia escort, expedition team, and ship's officers at a safety and orientation briefing before going to dinner. Afterward, relax and take in the mountainous scenery on our early evening sail down the Beagle Channel past Magellanic Penguins, Rock Cormorants, and sea lion colonies.

 

Antarctica lesbian cruise - Elephant Island

Day 2 - 3 - Wed - Thu, November 02 - 03, 2022
At Sea, Drake Passage, and King George Island

Sailing onward, you'll cross the famed Drake Passage, a body of water that marks the intersection of the cold Antarctic with the warmer Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Drake Passage is known for strong westerly winds, heavy seas, and its nickname ‘The Roaring Fifties.’ In the Drake, the excitement builds as Antarctic wildlife come into view with our first sightings of petrels, seals, penguins, and albatrosses. The expedition team will be out on deck as well, looking for the whales and dolphins that may also be seen in the area. Our experts will hold informative and entertaining presentations on the wildlife, history, and geology of Antarctica. Having crossed the Drake, you will explore the sub-Antarctic islands of the South Shetland chain and be marveled by the captivating landscapes we will encounter along the way. Weather permitting, we hope to make our first landfall on King George Island before continuing further south to the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula.

 

Antarctica lesbian adventure cruise

Day 4 - 7 - Fri - Mon, November 04 - 07, 2022
Antarctic Sound and the Weddell Sea

Over the coming days, you will begin the exciting Antarctic experience at the very tip of the continent. During these days in the Antarctic Sound, named in 1902 after the Swedish vessel Antarctic, the captain and the expedition team will keep a watchful eye on the mighty tabular icebergs, born from the floating Larsen Ice Shelf further south. We aim to have both continental and island landings, always on the lookout for Adelie, chinstrap, and gentoo penguin colonies as well as weddell, crabeater, and elephant seals that are often found hauled out to rest, along with predatory leopard seals and the aggressive Antarctic fur seal. Minke and humpback whales are frequent visitors and orca sightings are also common.

 

Antarctica lesbian cruise - South Georgia Island King Penguins

Day 8 - 13 - Tue - Sun, November 08 - 13, 2022
Drake Passage and South Georgia Island

From the Weddell Sea, we continue our journey into the open sea just as Ernest Shackleton and his men did more than hundred years ago while sailing the 720 nautical miles to South Georgia. South Georgia offers stunning wildlife experiences with a wealth of breeding king penguins, sea birds, sea lions, and seals, all seeking shelter in this oasis amidst the roaring Southern Ocean. Previous whaling history pops up in most of the fjords we will explore—not least in Grytviken, the only inhabited settlement on this mountainous island. Grytviken is also the final resting place of Ernest Shackleton, after he died on yet another Antarctic voyage in 1922. We will explore the fjords of the north coast for 2-3 days and take as many shore landings as time will allow.

 

Antarctica iceberg

Day 14 - 15 - Mon - Tue, November 14 - 15, 2022
South Atlantic, approaching Falkland Islands

We will continue our presentation series and wildlife spotting as we sail to the famed Falkland Islands. Days at sea are great for participating in lectures by our expedition leader and team as well as other activities hosted by the expedition team like watching the ubiquitous storm petrels and albatrosses from the top deck or relaxing in the spa or library with a good book.

 

Falkland Islands lesbian cruise

Day 16 - 17 - Wed - Thu, November 16 - 17, 2022
Port Stanley and Falkland Islands

We approach the Falkland Islands in the morning and in the early afternoon we will cast anchor in the sheltered natural harbor of Port Stanley. Utilizing our Zodiacs, we will land in the town center and take a leisurely stroll through the streets of Stanley.
On the following day, we will make landings (weather permitting) at two of the islands’ many magnificent wildlife spots as the Falklands' main attraction is undoubtedly its wildlife. Penguins, black-browed Albatross, seals, and whales are just some animals that can be found. This is one of the world's great penguin capitals: as many as a million penguins nest in the Falklands every summer, representing five of the world's seventeen species—King, Gentoo, Rockhopper, Magellanic, and Macaroni. What's more, for the Gentoo, the Falklands are home to the largest population on Earth.

Day 18 - Wednesday, November 18, 2022
At Sea toward Ushuaia, Argentina

We are now into the last leg of this adventurous voyage, heading back to Ushuaia while we soak in all the amazing adventures we had and memories we made.

 

Ushuaia lighthouse

Day 19 - Thursday, November 19, 2022
Ushuaia, Argentina Disembarkation

After a hearty farewell to vessel and crew, we disembark in the morning after breakfast. A morning disembarkation lets you catch a flight to Buenos Aires or stay in Ushuaia for more sights and adventures.
