We invite you to join some of our foremost whale researchers on a voyage of discovery to one of the most spectacular environments on the planet, the Antarctic Peninsula. This is no ordinary tourist cruise. Nor is it a standard research expedition. We partnered with Polar Latitudes, a company formed by a group of polar travel professionals with decades of experience in the region. Their mission is to provide “best in class” Antarctic experiences aboard their all-suite expedition ships.
Polar Latitudes’ Citizen Science program offers travelers the option to contribute to major research studies, and WHOI is fielding a team of six researchers in 2020—four on the water tagging whales and tracking their prey, krill, and two onboard the Hebridean Sky using a brand new technology to analyze water samples.
Travelers who attended last year reported overwhelming enthusiasm for their amazing adventure. You can find complete trip details, download a 20-page brochure, and read remarks from last year's participants by clicking the button below.
