Antarctica on board m/v Plancius
by Les Howarth
My trip to Antarctica on board m/v Plancius by far exceeded my expectations. We were fortunate enough to have exceptional weather,.allowing us to make the most of the continuous activities. With 2 shore excursions and 2 Zodiac tours, amongst the icebergs, whales, penguins and seals each day, coupled with daily kayaking and a night camping, you would think there’d be no time for anything else. However there was. In the evenings and during the transit across the Drake Passage and back, there were presentations in the lounge, on history of Antarctica, the local wildlife, weather etc etc. These were conducted by scientists and other members of the staff with degrees in specific areas. The meals were of a high standard. The ship was quite comfortable. All staff were professional, courteous and very helpful. The kayaking guide was a real character and made each kayaking trip one to remember. This trip will will be embedded in my mind for ever.
