Weddell Sea

Get amazed with incredible tabular icebergs

These expeditions take you on a polar adventure in the remote Weddell Sea, a rarely visited area on the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula.

This area is famous for its incredible tabular icebergs, which amaze us with their large size and almost perfect rectangular shape. 

The Weddell Sea represents the centre of the Peninsula’s Adélie penguin population, which has an impressive number of penguins. Juvenile Emperor Penguins, riding on ice floes, have sometimes been sighted, but are by no means common in the area. In addition to penguins, it is possible to encounter orcas, humpback and minke whales, leopard seals and crabeater seals.

Generally, these itineraries focus on the east side of the Peninsula, although classic sites on the west side are often visited as well, depending on the itinerary selected and the ice conditions at the time.
