So, I was lucky enough to win Oceanwide's contest for the Spectacular Ross Sea - an epic 30 day expedition across Western Antarctica. I knew it was going to be amazing. On paper, it sounded like the trip of a lifetime. However, those expectations were modest, at best. The experience with Oceanwide was beyond anything I expected; it was mind-bending, life-altering, and, frankly, unbelievable. I was privileged to see historic huts, dry valleys, research stations, isolated islands and a landscape teeming with life and dripping with ice. We saw so much wildlife - Western Antarctica is swarming with life. We saw mountains choked with glaciers and friendly research scientists and thousands of curious penguins. And being able to see all of this from our ship, and through zodiac and helicopter excursions...it was enough to make me feel like an adventurer. Most important is the staff and the accommodations. Ortelius is a very comfortable ship. The crew and expedition staff are knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated to making sure your experience is one-of-a-kind. Book your trip now! Antarctica is calling you.
