Welcome to Antarctic Convergence


The exact location of the Antarctic Convergence varies slightly throughout the year, and also from year to year. Despite what you may hear, there’s very little sign that you're crossing the convergence. The sea does not get rougher, and there's usually no change in its appearance. The primary indicator is a dip in the water temperature, a change that the ship’s instruments will detect but that you almost certainly will not.
