Scenic Eclipse and Scenic Eclipse II

Scenic Eclipse I and II will embark on an expanded range of new expedition voyages across Antarctica in 2023 and 2024.

New bookings made by 31DEC 2022 can enjoy savings of 10 per cent plus 2-for-1 Business Class airfare on most itineraries.

The first of eight departures is 21NOV 2023, with prices starting at CAD $22,410 per person, double occupancy. Additionally, there are Festive Holiday Collection sailings that include Christmas and New Year’s.

On these additional dates, voyages will explore the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, the Weddell Sea and Chilean Fjords, with further exploration of smaller islands and wildlife encounters available for the 200 guests on board each of the yachts.

Guests will be able to explore Antarctica with a collection of voyages, for varying types of expedition travel.

The Discovery Team on each yacht provides guests with insights into the wildlife and landscape. The teams lead guests on guided kayak and paddle boarding excursions, nature walks and Zodiac tours with multiple landings each day.

Additionally, guests can enjoy more unique exploration with each yacht’s two helicopters and custom-built submarine.

Antarctica highlights include ‘Antarctica in Depth’, which is a 13-day Antarctica expedition voyage, roundtrip from BAI. Scenic Eclipse sets sail and cruises through the Beagle Channel with views of the Andean Mountains of Tierra del Fuego with highlights including seeing arctic wildlife in their natural habitat, climbing a volcanic crater, remnants of a whaling station, kayaking and paddle boarding.

The 22-day Antarctica & Chilean Fjords journey, beginning in BAI and ending in SCL, takes in Antarctica, Cape Horn, and then explores the Chilean Fjords, where guests can witness the Seno Garibaldi and Seno Pia glaciers, while the four days sailing the Inner Fjords open up views of the San Valentin Glacier and locations in Southern Chile. Departing 21FEB 2024, fares start at CAD $31,197.

The 19-day Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands voyage is designed for guests seeking longer expeditions. Highlights of this package includes a Scenic Discovery excursion at Gypsy Cove, walking the wildlife trail to see the Magellanic penguin colony, cruise by Zodiac along the two-mile mountain range which forms the spine of the long, narrow island of South Georgia, and visiting and learning about Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands, and its thriving community.

Seeing penguins, albatross, fur seals, elephant seals, whales and dolphins in the Falklands is an additional highlight. Departing 04NOV, 2023, prices start from CAD $32,708 (and includes an additional 10 per cent Pay-in-Full savings instead of 2-for-1 Business air).

For guests looking for more in-depth looks at arctic wildlife, Scenic’s 15- and 16-day Antarctica & the Weddell Sea voyages focus on the elusive Emperor Penguin along the ice-chocked Weddell Sea, well past the Antarctica Peninsula. Guests can take the optional helicopter excursion to see them in their natural habitat. Other experiences while spending nine+ days in Antarctica include the South Shetland Islands, exploring Elephant Island with the Discovery Team on Zodiacs, kayaks or stand-up paddleboards; and visiting a working scientific base. Departing 05DEC and 13DEC 2023, prices begin at CAD $24,508 and $27,648, respectively.

Crossing the Antarctic Circle is a rare feat and Scenic Eclipse II will attempt to explore one of the world’s most seldom-visited regions during the 16-day Beyond the Antarctic Circle. Guests can cruise on Zodiacs around icebergs and kayak and stand-up paddleboard on the icy waters of the Antarctic. The first of three departures is on 8JAN 2024, with fares starting at CAD $25,888.
