Explorer Boat

Guts, the guide, has traveled on this particular ship several times before.  Not more than ninety travelers participate with up to ten wildlife photography experts.  All guests may disembark at the same time in ten Zodiacs/Rubber Ducks exploring the landing areas along the route.  The continent of the Antarctica has restrictions in place in regards to the total number of people allowed to land at any one place at any one time.

The crew of this specific explorer boat consists of very hard working and professional.  The crew is willing to adapt the itinerary on short notice to make the most of favorable weather patterns and potential sightings.  This boat is a Russian Ice Breaker with an impeccable safety record and exceptional maneuverability.  Its unique draft and turning circle allows it to reach destinations not normally accessible to the larger ships.

Season of travel

The reason for traveling already in October to the Antarctic is that with the sun skirting in a low trajectory across the horizon for most of the day the travelers are in a perfect state of low-angle light as one would have in the early mornings and late afternoons.  Furthermore, the snow is whiter in October and November making for more pleasant backgrounds to the images.
