Antarctica & Patagonia
Join us for the ultimate Antarctica & Patagonia Experience
Majestic, unspoiled natural splendors await — snow-capped volcanoes reflected in crystalline lakes, massive glaciers and fjords, the rugged grandeur of Patagonia, Cape Horn and beyond, the sweeping landscapes and diverse wildlife of Antarctica.
A skilled expedition staff will plan and manage our cruise and coordinate special landings in Antarctica, choosing from numerous extraordinary options to give you the very best experience possible during your adventure, based on ice and weather conditions. Experts and special guest speakers will join us on board as well, offering insights and guidance to enhance your experience and help maximize your enjoyment and appreciation of this boundless land.
On board Seabourn Quest, every care will be taken to ensure your complete comfort and well-being, from a well-timed glass of champagne to a rejuvenating massage after a day ashore. Though we may be far from home, the signature touches that make Seabourn one of the world’s highest-rated small-ship cruise lines will never be out of reach.
Special modifications have prepared Seabourn Quest for the unique conditions in and around Antarctica. These important enhancements will enable us to venture closer than ever to the White Continent’s wondrous shores.
When you cruise with Seabourn, we promise a voyage that is nothing short of magical. Each cruise to Antarctica and Patagonia includes the following exclusive amenities and activities designed to enhance every moment:
*Zodiac landings are limited to guests six years and older. The final itinerary is subject to weather, ice and other conditions and subject to change.
Daily Antarctica Updates
Seabourn Quest’s second season in Antarctica is under way, and guests are having the time of their lives! There are so many stories and photos we want to share with you, and we’re very excited to be able to do this through a new tracking website. The site tracks where the ship is each day and features daily reports and updates from our stellar expedition team, as well as a collection of beautiful imagery and photos.
If you have friends and family sailing on one our Antarctica cruises, you can follow along and live vicariously through their adventures! It’s also an excellent way to get a great sense of what it’s like to sail on one of our Antarctica & Patagonia voyages. We hope you enjoy the stories and photos from Seabourn Quest!
Red roofs and smoking chimneys decorate the gently sloping hillsides of Punta Arenas (Sandy Point), the bustling center of one of the world's largest sheep farming areas. This pleasant community welcomes you with attractive parks and delightful Victorian architecture.
The wild and beautiful Aysén District of Chile lies south of Chiloe and Puerto Montt. Here you find cliffs that drop into immense river valleys, numerous waterfalls and ravines that open into vast valleys, while the Andes form a continuous barrier. Puerto Chacabuco is a popular entry port to the Aysén region. It lies at the eastern end of a very narrow fjord and has replaced Puerto Aysén as the main shipping port and ferry terminal to this region. Puerto Chacabuco is also a departure point for sailings to Laguna San Rafael. Local vessels make the scenic trip through the channels and islands of Western Patagonia.
