Our South Georgia in Depth cruise takes us to one of the jewels of the South Atlantic Ocean. This incredibly remote and wild island is home to an abundance of wildlife; and in fact, South Georgia has rightly been called ‘the most staggering wildlife show on earth’!
This particular birding cruise is timed to coincide with the arrival of spring as South Georgia emerges from the long and frigid winter – a really exceptional time to visit! Late October marks the beginning of the wildlife migration and commencement of the breeding cycle for many species on the island. Scenes of male Southern Elephant Seals battling for control of the beaches (and their female harems), and the intimate and beautiful courtship rituals of the albatrosses and antics of the young penguin chicks, will have you believing you are ‘on the set’ of your very own wildlife documentary. For lovers of remote, small-ship expedition cruises, this voyage ticks every box you could possibly imagine; and, for photographers in particular, this cruise will leave you with a plethora of images and some amazing memories that are certain to linger for a lifetime!
