Let Scenic Eclipse take you to the Earth’s most mysterious and mythical stretches with an ocean cruise of Earth’s southernmost continent, immersing you in lands of pristine beauty, and breath-taking wildlife. Go beneath the surface with a once-in-a-lifetime submarine tour*, or navigate the spectacular waterways of Paradise Bay via our fleet of sea-ready Zodiacs.

Antarctica is awash with incredible scenery and unique wildlife, and Scenic Eclipse will take you closer than ever before. Experience fur seals and King penguins in their natural habitat from the safety of our on board submarine* during our Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands itinerary. Take our kayaks for a paddle around blue-tinged icebergs as part of Scenic Freechoice and get the chance to observe minke, humpback and killer whales (orcas) up close during our Ultimate Antarctica itinerary.

Discovery is even more exciting thanks to our handcrafted itineraries, all filled to the brim with extraordinary experiences.
