With the upcoming deployment of the 198-guest World VoyagerTM, Atlas Ocean Voyages will have three expedition yachts in Antarctica for the 2023/24 season and offer three different ways to explore the White Continent. Become immersed in one of the most remote regions of the world, navigate amid the icebergs, glaciers and ice floes, and come close to incredible wildlife and breathtaking landscapes all the while making a deeper connection with fellow explorers. Conquer the Drake Passage and find moments of reverence in the pristine environment of the seventh continent.
World VoyagerTM is offering a collection of ten 9- to 11-night expedition options sailing from Ushuaia roundtrip during its maiden Antarctica season. Guests will enjoy a private charter jet service between Buenos Aires and Ushuaia, one night pre-cruise hotel stay in Buenos Aires, and a complimentary Tierra del Fuego National Park exploration along with a long list of other inclusions. These itineraries feature multiple Zodiac shore landings on the peninsula.
November 2023 – March 2024 Departures
Are you short on vacation time or worried about sailing the Drake Passage? Consider Atlas' new Drake Express option, which lets you fly from Punta Arenas (Chile) to the Eduardo Frei Montalva air base on King George Island, off the coast of Antarctica, and avoid the Drake Passage at the beginning and end of your voyage, thus maximizing your exploration time on the ground. You still get to enjoy 1-night pre- and post-cruise hotel stay, a Tierra del Fuego National Park visit or a free cultural immersion in Punta Arenas on these shorter voyages. Only one departure is left (January 2, 2024) for the upcoming season!

Alternatively, fly over the Drake Passage one way (at the beginning or end of your journey) and sail in the other direction with Atlas’ Drake Fly & Sail options. These one-way expeditions include charter flights from Punta Arenas to King George Island and from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia. You also receive a complimentary pre- and post-cruise hotel night and a cultural immersion in Punta Arenas.
December 7, 19 & 26, 2023 & January 7, 2024
These itineraries feature landings on Shetland Islands, Useful Point, Wilhelmina Bay and the Yalour Islands during your voyage.
