G Adventures is welcoming its ‘little red ship’ - G Expedition - back to the water with up to 20 per cent savings for travellers looking to book the ultimate bucket list trip this upcoming 2022/2023 Antarctic season.
Two and half years since the global pandemic forced the ship out of service, the G Adventures team and crew "can’t wait to be back leading with service and delivering a program of life-changing activities onboard, while exploring one of the world’s most remote and pristine regions," the company said in a release on Tuesday (Sept. 6).
David Green, managing director for G Adventures in Canada, says the ship’s program is designed to teach travellers the importance of environmental protection, while at the same time introducing them to the beauty of Antarctica’s landscape and fascinating wildlife.
“While onboard G Expedition in Antarctica travellers participate in the ship’s long-standing citizen science projects and onboard education program to help them make the most of their Antarctic expedition. We also have a ‘photographer-in-residence’ onboard to help travellers tell a visual story about their adventure, and to share their learnings when they come home as they ultimately become custodians of the oceans," Green said.
“As part of our commitment to environmental protection, our Expedition staff also collect data from points in Antarctica that researchers struggle to acquire information. Our onboard education program includes lectures on the conservation of birds, marine mammals, marine wildlife and ecosystems - as well as global climate change and its impact on the world - all delivered by our team of scientific experts, or “Scientists in Residence”, who facilitate the talks.
“With bucket list adventures high on travellers’ lists, this a great time to snap up a deal and head to one of the most incredible places on the planet. And for those who can’t travel this year, our 2023 / 2024 dates are now also live to book."
Travellers can save up to 20 per cent on this season’s expedition trips, when booked before Sept. 29, 2022, for travel between October 22, 2022 and March 13, 2023. Example trips include:
Antarctica Classic - Passing huge icebergs in the flat calm of a polar morning will reshape the way you look at your world. Encounter huge whales, enormous rookeries of penguins, and stunning landscapes few have ever witnessed. This 11-day expedition will introduce you to the magic of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Save 20 per cent - was priced from $11,099pp* now priced from $8,879pp departing on March 13, 2023 based on two people sharing a twin cabin.
Antarctica Classic In-Depth - Like our "Antarctica Classic" tour, this 13-day expedition introduces you to the magic of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula, but adds on two additional days to better explore its majesty. Part of the reward of arriving in Antarctica is the challenge of negotiating the Drake Passage — and the G Expedition will bring you there safely. Encounter leopard seals lazing on ice floes and immense rookeries of penguins surrounded by towering glaciers.
