Following the success of their inaugural Antarctica Expedition in March, Majestic Whale Encounters is excited to announce the return of this limited-edition tour in 2025. Initially designed as a one-off expedition, the overwhelming response to the tour has seen Majestic Whale Encounters add it to their 2025 roster, relaunching the tour as a cornerstone in the company’s annual lineup of wildlife encounters. Showcasing the beauty of the planet’s most picturesque and elusive destination, the Antarctica Expedition is set to become one of Majestic Whale Encounters’ most sought-after tours.

Founder and Managing Director of Majestic Whale Encounters, Carmen Ellis, is thrilled to announce the return of the Antarctica Expedition in 2025. “Antarctica is a whole world of wonders waiting to be discovered, and this small group expedition offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the region’s majestic beauty,” said Carmen. “At Majestic, we aim to connect people with nature in a way that educates through responsible and socially conscious travel. Antarctica is the perfect place for us to live this ethos, as its vast landscape serves as a powerful reminder of the need for environmental stewardship.”

The 14-day Antarctica Expedition is designed for divers, snorkellers, and photographers eager to hone their skills while exploring the icy landscape. Guests on this small group tour will get to experience the region aboard the revolutionary, eco-friendly ship Sylvia Earle. Purpose-built for the harsh Antarctic environment, the Sylvia Earle will allow guests to travel in ultimate comfort and relaxation with an onboard sauna spa, swimming pool, gym, lounge and bar.

While on board, avid photographers will get to take part in a unique photographic workshop with award-winning nature photographer Scott Portelli, improving their skills in one of the most remote destinations on the planet. The tour provides ample opportunity to snorkel in the sub-zero waters alongside seals, penguins, and whales, allowing travellers to get up close and personal for incredible photo opportunities and once-in-a-lifetime encounters.

The Antarctica Expedition will be held in March 2025 and features exceptional inclusions such as:
