WWF Giants of Antarctica (Ocean Endeavour)

WWF Giants of Antarctica (Ocean Endeavour)

Join Intrepid and special guests from the World Wildlife Fund – Australia (WWF-Australia) on an 11-day expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula. Scout icy waters and white shores for whales and other critters by day, then relax and enjoy a fascinating lecture program by night. Alongside our regular team of Antarctic experts, WWF-Australia scientists will join this tour to share insights into whale conservation as they conduct cutting edge research on these underwater giants.?While sailing on the Ocean Endeavour and exploring by Zodiac, scan the icy waters for the silhouettes of these mighty marine mammals as they glide through ice floes or break the Antarctic silence with spectacular acrobatics. Step foot on the Great White Continent to watch curious penguins, basking seals and many fascinating seabirds on a journey you’ll never forget.

    Highlights

    • Travel with a team of researchers in peak humpback season and learn about state-of-the-art whale research techniques and marine conservation.
