AA Tour, February 12-15, 2024, Antarctica I

Between January 29-March 1, 2024, Candace and I toured Argentina and Antarctica, our AA Tour.

On February 12, we arrived in Ushuiai (the world’s southernmost city) and boarded the Seabourn Venture which set sail in mid afternoon. We cruised through the Drake Passage and reached the Antarctic Peninsula overnight on February 13-14, so we started touring  on February 14.

Typically, we’d board zodiacs - small motorboats that carry 8 or 12 passengers.  The  zodiacs would take us close to the shore and usually allow us to get off and walk around the landing area. There were usually two “expeditions” each day.
