January

Peak season with near 24-hour daylight. Spot adorable fluffy penguin chicks and explore remote huts used by explorers in the Ross Sea.

Expand

February

Best time for whale watching, including humpback, sperm, and orca whales. Penguins and fur seals remain abundant, and cruises venture beyond the Polar Circle.

Expand

March

As the season winds down, fewer ships visit. Great for whale spotting and witnessing fur seals on the Antarctic Peninsula.

October

Few cruises visit this early, but it offers lower fares, pristine landscapes, and the potential for great photography. Look for penguins and seals on icebergs.

Expand

November

The Antarctica season begins, and you can witness hatching penguin chicks. Combining with South Georgia allows viewing elephant seal courting and penguin mating. Spring flowers bloom on subantarctic islands, and seabirds soar over the Drake Passage.

Expand

December

Arguably the best time with warmer temperatures, long daylight, and active wildlife. However, it's the most expensive period.
