Kayaking in Antarctica

Kayaking in Antarctica

Kayaking in Antarctica

​Oceanwide Expeditions offers optional kayak excursions in addition to the normal expedition program. On every cruise with a kayak option we hope to schedule up to 4 kayak excursions. However, it must be said that Antarctica is unpredictable when it comes to the weather. This might lead to less or even no kayak excursions as kayaking can and will only take place in safe weather conditions. Under no circumstances will the safety limits be compromised!

Kayak excursions

All kayak excursions will take place within a safe distance from the ship, and at all times a zodiac will be on standby. The kayaks used are stable single seat and double seat sea kayaks. In total 14 passengers can join a kayak trip, depending on the number of guides involved and the kayak skills of the participants. The kayaking will solemnly be done as a group activity. At least one kayak guide will lead the group and a zodiac will follow for assistance. Kayak excursions normally last three to four hours. The objective is wildlife, scenery, icebergs, etc Chances of meeting wildlife while paddling are high.

Kayak season

The season in which these voyages take place lasts from December until March. The voyages will explore the Antarctic Peninsulas western coasts and sometimes the northern part of the Weddell Sea.

Safety

Oceanwide kayak guides & support zodiac Safety during activities is important to us. Kayak guides are experienced and qualified instructors who will support our passengers. The excursions will be tailored to the skill level of the group and the sea conditions encountered. A support zodiac will be in the vicinity of the kayak group, just a radio call away in case someone feels tired and wishes to return to the ship.
