For a third season, Atlas Ocean Voyages has launched sales for its winter 2023-24 Antarctica season, providing seasoned travelers with more once-in-a-lifetime trips to this remote and bucket-list destination. The World Navigator and World Traveller, two small luxury expedition ships, will return to the Seventh Continent from November 2023 to March 2024 to bring stunning vistas, penguins, seals, whales, seabirds, and other creatures that can only be seen there.

There are 23 cruises to choose from, ranging in length from nine to twenty nights, and nearly all of them depart round-trip from Ushuaia, Argentina. World Navigator will go on trips to the Antarctic Peninsula, while World Traveller will go on more thorough expeditions to the Antarctic region.

Depending on weather and sea conditions, guests on the World Navigator and World Traveller’s Antarctica adventures can expect up to two ship outings every day. The ships’ captains keep an eye on onboard weather and undersea sensors, as well as meteorological forecasts, to prepare for safe passage to harbors where passengers can walk ashore or have waterborne safaris aboard zodiacs to see marine species and iceberg formations, or go kayaking or paddleboarding.

Beginning November 9, 2023, World Navigator will offer 13 Antarctica departures. Itineraries focusing on the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula are available for nine and eleven nights. On the nine-night trips, guests will spend four days exploring Antarctica, while the 11-night voyages will spend six days cruising the region and crossing into the Antarctic Circle to acquire membership in the Order of the Blue Nose. Both itineraries feature a spectacular trip around Cape Horn, Chile, South America’s southernmost point.

World Navigator will depart on a special 14-night route combining the Falkland Islands and the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands on March 15, 2024, at the end of the season. Guests will have the opportunity to see the growing marine fauna that has become adapted to warmer climates, such as the King Penguin. The itinerary also includes stops in Uruguay’s Punta del Este and Montevideo, as well as an overnight stay in Argentina’s Buenos Aires.

The Antarctic Peninsula, the South Shetland Islands, the Diego Ramirez Islands, the Falkland Islands, and South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands are all included in World Traveller’s 13-, 16-, and 20-night immersive journeys. Almost all World Traveller missions to Antarctica include a crossing of the Antarctic Circle and a transit through the Lemaire Channel, which is regarded one of the most stunning Antarctic landscapes ever explored.

To round out her Antarctica season, World Traveller provides two unique trans-Atlantic trips. The 12-night westbound route leaves from the Canary Islands, Spain, on October 24, 2023, and travels through Western Africa, stopping in Dakhla, Western Sahara, Dakar, Senegal, and Banjul, Gambia. World Traveller will end her season on March 13, 2024, with a 19-night cruise from Ushuaia to Cape Town, South Africa. Guests will spend two days in the Falkland Islands, three days in the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands, and three days in Tristan da Cunha, the world’s most remote inhabited archipelago in the Southern Atlantic.
