Ventures by Seabourn™ Kayak Excursions Now Offered in Antarctica

We are excited to announce that we will be bringing you even closer to the majestic and unspoiled natural wonders of Antarctica with our new optional Ventures by Seabourn™ kayaking excursions. Over the next year-and-a-half, Seabourn Quest will sail to the secluded Antarctic Peninsula eight times, offering you up-close and intimate experiences to one of the most remarkable regions on the planet.

"The wildlife and wonders of Antarctica never fail to amaze, and Ventures by Seabourn puts our guests face-to-face with its natural beauty," notes Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. "With our knowledgeable expedition teams leading the kayak adventures, it's an off-ship excursion that guests won't want to miss and won't ever forget."

Introduced aboard Seabourn Quest this past spring, Ventures by Seabourn is an informative, educational and exhilarating way to enhance your cruise experience. In Antarctica, Seabourn Quest's kayak guide will be Matt J. Dolan, who has kayaked the entire Inside Passage from Seattle to Muir Glacier in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska – a journey that encompassed more than 1,300 miles and a feat few have accomplished.

Led by qualified guides, this is just an incredible way to explore the Great White Continent. You will paddle amidst glistening white-blue icebergs, penguins, curious seals and even whales. In addition to Antarctica, Ventures by Seabourn kayak excursions will also be offered at South Georgia and Port Stanley (Falkland Islands).

Seabourn Quest's third season at the bottom of the world launches with our 21-Day Ultimate Antarctica & Patagonia, departing Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 29, 2015 and includes five full days in Antarctica. The eight-cruise season will wrap up with another 21-Day Ultimate Antarctica & Patagonia voyage departing from Valparaiso (Santiago), Chile, on February 2, 2017.
