A South Georgia cruise take you to an island, located in the Southern Ocean and part of the United Kingdom Commonwealth. South Georgia is a wildlife paradise, home to penguin rookeries with more than 100,000 king penguins. We explore key landing sites that provide access to 100’s of thousands of king penguins, elephant seals and of course the frisky fur seals found onshore. One Ocean Expeditions extended 14 or 16 night voyages offers the best South Georgia has to offer. Only on those voyages will you have the privilege to spend more consecutive days exploring South Georgia. Here you will witness what has often been described as the ‘greatest wildlife show on earth’. The story of Sir Ernest Shackleton and the Endurance expedition from over a century ago is forever connected to the island. Today, the place teems with wildlife on a jaw-dropping scale. King penguin rookeries are home to more than a hundred-thousand birds, seals cover the beaches and nesting seabirds fi ll the skies.
