Discover Antarctica with Susan Calman

Comedian, writer and presenter Susan Calman recently joined us on board Scenic Eclipse, The World's First Discovery YachtsTM, on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition voyage to Antarctica.

Sailing from Ushuaia on our most popular expedition voyage, Antarctica in Depth, Susan sailed the Drake Passage before reaching the polar south where she explored the pristine waters by kayak, completed the 'Polar Plunge', took a helicopter flight to witness the stunning glacial landscapes from above and embarked on a submersible dive on board the custom-built Scenic Neptune.

Susan joined excursions led by the Scenic expert Discovery Team, comprising naturalists, marine biologists, and glaciologists, with unrivalled access to the region’s most remarkable landing sites, witnessing an array of wildlife including orcas, humpback whales, sealions, chinstrap penguins & gentoo penguins.

Catch up on all of this and discover the ultra-luxury surroundings of Scenic Eclipse and the unrivalled amenities on board, on ‘Cruising with Susan Calman', episodes 6 and 7.
