Exceptional performances by the A&K team and landing crew.
Lectures were insightful, humorous and educational – a great
addition to the impact of the natural wonders of the Antarctica.
I left Antarctica with a very strong feeling of the importance
of protecting the beauty of what we have on this planet. I
was also grateful for the naturalists and scientists on board,
such as Dr. Jim McClintock, who clearly have such a passion
for this place and for protecting it for future generations.
Cruises with Special Programming Include:
Photography in Focus
A trip of a lifetime is the perfect opportunity to capture memories to last a lifetime, which is why A&K offers a departure focused on photography. Professional wildlife and landscape photographer and A&K photography coach Richard Harker provides hands-on tips and lectures. Available on Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falkland Islands (January 17, 2017).
