Seabourn has announced a new set of "Ventures by Seabourn" kayaking excursions in Antarctica.
Led by qualified guides, the new excursions launch directly from the ship's fold-out watersports marina and offer guests up-close views of Antarctica's wildlife and scenery. They are also available at South Georgia Island and Port Stanley (Falkland Islands / Islas Malvinas).
Introduced aboard Seabourn Quest in the summer of 2015, Ventures by Seabourn is a series of optional excursions guided by expedition teams of scientists, scholars and naturalists who are part of the vessel's Seabourn Conversations program. In Antarctica, Seabourn Quest's kayak guide will be Matt J. Dolan, who has kayaked the entire Inside Passage from Seattle to Muir Glacier in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska - a journey that encompassed more than 1,300 miles.
Beginning November 29, 2015, Seabourn Quest returns to Antarctica for its third season, beginning on a series of four 21- to 24-day voyages between Valparaíso, (Santiago) Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Each includes days exploring the Chilean coast and fjords, Beagle Channel, Glacier Alley, the Torres del Paine National Park, the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas, Montevideo and six days of cruising and landings on the Antarctic Continent. A 24-day holiday version, departing December 20, 2015, will include two days exploring the sub-Antarctic destination of South Georgia, known for its rookeries of king penguins and other seabirds, as well as breeding elephant and fur seals.
