We went on the base camp expedition cruise on Oceanwide, OTL27-19 Antarctic Peninsula. There are not enough adjectives to positively describe this incredible journey. Deciding what was the highlight of our trip is impossible There were numerous highlights; camping overnight on a glacier, landings including snowshoeing up to penguin rookeries, kayaking while penguins, seals, whales and icebergs went by, or just enjoying the passing scenery and birds from the railing. Perhaps one thing that stood out the most, was the staff. From the hotel staff to the expedition staff, everyone was exceptional. The food was delicious and varied. They made celebrating the New Year an event to remember. Our expedition leader, Beau, and his staff were professional, fun, passionate about their love of the area and generous with their knowledge and expertise. Their ability to manage the logistics and needs of passengers that ranged from young 20’s- 70’s and their flexibility necessitated by weather was absolutely mind blowing. Our Captain and his crew worked hard with the expedition staff to ensure our safety and provide a memorable experience. Well done Oceanwide Expeditions!
