Isolated. Vast. Frozen. Antarctica is the most mysterious and unforgiving continent on Earth. If you have cold feet and aren’t quite ready to commit to our Antarctica: Gay Expedition, here are 7 reasons to visit the 7th Continent.

7. Sizzling Swag

Every passenger gets a signature parka to ensure they’re set for the frigid climate. Look hot and feel warm in this very cool souvenir.

6. Photography

Hobby photographers can attend onboard lectures about capturing the perfect shot against Antarctica’s vast white terrain. A professional photographer will even join us on expedition days, giving tips and tricks to snag exceptional penguin prints, seal snaps and a polar portrait for your Scruff Tinder LinkedIn profile.

5. Glacial Grandeur

Antarctica offers some of Earth’s most rugged and unforgiving wilderness, but the Ultramarine ship is stacked with sumptuous furnishings and plush bedding. The public areas include an observation deck, a lively lounge, a tranquil library, a spa and even a gym.

While the seas may be tumultuous, our cruise ship will be luxurious.

4. Water Sports…

Glide along the coast on on optional kayak or stand-up paddle excursions. Your expert guide will navigate you through hidden bays and magical icebergs. Keep your eyes peeled for orcas, chin-strapped penguins, and Weddell seals.

Try not to fall off your SUP board if a curious whale breaches the surface.

3. Subzero Safaris

Over five days, small Zodiacs will ferry us ashore to hike snowy paths and traverse frozen landscapes. We’ll visit penguin rookeries to get acquainted with the chinstrap, adelie and gentoo species. We’ll also photograph lazy weddell, fur and leopard seals. Finally, look to the skies for the albatross and petrels.


2. Cetacean Sightings

Seeing a blue whale breach is one of the natural world’s true wonders. Unfortunately, these camera-shy mammoths rarely break the ocean’s surface. However, there’s a good chance you’ll see pods of orcas hunting seals, along with minke and humpback whales. Even fin, sperm and right whales are a common sight in these southernmost parts.

1. It is Earth’s greatest wilderness.

Antarctica is rock, frost and water. It’s ice shelves and ice caps. It’s solitude.

Explorers who forge through this remote location often return with a newfound respect for Mother Nature. Calling this experience “Powerful” would be an understatement.
