Polar plunge

If you’re up to the shock, the polar plunge can be one of the more “invigorating” experiences of an expedition cruise

Polar plunge

Region: Antarctica

Destinations: South Shetland Islands

Taking the polar plunge

​A favorite activity for (some of) our passengers is the so-called polar plunge, a shore-based swimming activity we occasionally offer in Antarctica when local conditions allow. For safety reasons, we do not offer the activity directly from the ship or Zodiac boat. Rather, we select a suitable beach from which our more daring guests can immerse themselves in the frigid polar waters. Also, the polar plunge always takes place under the direct supervision of our guides to ensure everyone’s safety.
