Amazing Antarctica Part 4 of 4

This 10-minute video is the fourth of four parts covering our amazing trip to Antarctica. Part 4 highlights our ship's passage through the Lemaire Channel, a scenic waterway that's one of the top tourist destinations in Antarctica. We then enjoyed a landing at Useful Island watching the antics of many more penguins. The final event was the journey back to Ushuaia, Argentina from Useful Island. There were several activities on board to keep us occupied as we traversed North back through the Drake Passage. We absolutely loved this trip and hope you'll enjoy all four parts. 0:00 Opening Trailer 0:49 Lemaire Channel 3:33 Useful Island Landing 7:56 Drake Passage back to Ushuaia Music provided by -- Call to Adventure - Comedy by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...

Amazing Antarctica Part 2 of 4

This 13-minute video is the second of four parts covering our amazing trip to Antarctica. Part 2 highlights our visit to Barrientos Island, one of many in the South Shetland Islands. From there we did a Zodiak cruise through the stunning Cierva Cove. Finally, we went to Portal Point. There was a planned landing there, but the wind made the seas too rough to even get in the Zodiaks.

Part 1 highlights some fun sites we saw in and around Ushuaia, Argentina before we boarded our ship which took us to Antarctica. As you'll learn, because of weather conditions at various locations, we had to go with the flow throughout the trip. Locations visited in this first video include -- Tierra del Fuego National Park (part of Patagonia), the city of Ushuaia and its Prison Museum, the start of our journey through the Beagle Channel, waiting in the Beagle, and finally starting through the Drake Passage.
