Welcome to Southern Ocean
Visit the rocky but fecund shores of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, with abundant wildlife and history. Most cruises from South America call in at the South Shetland Islands or the South Orkney Islands, where people set up their first Antarctic outposts. Travelers from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa approach the continent from the Ross Sea side, with seabird-rich Heard and Macquarie Islands.
Sailing these waters and sighting these windswept isles re-creates the journeys of early adventurers.
