ITINERARY

Day 1: Buenos Aires, Argentia

On arrival at Buenos Aires Airport, please make your way through to the Arrivals Hall where our representative will be waiting for you to transfer you to your hotel. He/she will be holding a sign with your name on it. Should you not be able to contact them, please refer to the front of your itinerary for emergency contact details of our representative office.

The first night of your voyage is spent in Argentina’s historic and vibrant capital, Buenos Aires. Today is at leisure for you to explore this elegant city. You may like to wander through the Recoleta Cemetery, the neighbourhood of San Telmo with its fascinating restored mansions or the colourful barrio of La Boca, home of the tango.

Day 2: Embarkation in Buenos Aires

This morning is again free for you to discover Buenos Aires further, or maybe explore the Tigre Delta.

This afternoon we transfer to the port of Buenos Aires in time for embarkation on board the Ocean Endeavour in the late afternoon. The Expedition Team and the Ship’s Officers will be waiting to welcome us aboard. As we set sail, watch the city lights of Buenos Aires fade into the distance, familiarise yourself with the layout of the Ocean Endeavour and its great amenities and enjoy a welcome dinner.

Days 3 - 5: At Sea

The next couple of days are spent at sea, but there are many activities to keep you entertained and the on board amenities to enjoy including a spa, saunas, saltwater pool and gym and relaxing yoga classes.

Learn to identify the seabirds that follow in the wake of the ship or glide alongside the vessel including albatrosses, storm petrels, shearwaters, and diving petrels. Look out for whales and dolphins as you enjoy the silence of the sea. Attend daily presentations by the Expedition Team and learn the safety procedures for shore landings and Zodiac cruises as we near the Islas Malvinas.

Day 6 & 7: Falkland Islands

Have your camera at the ready as we approach the ruggedly beautiful Falklands archipelago to capture not only the abundant wildlife but also the incredible scenery.

Over the next couple of days we explore East and West Island by Zodiac and on foot as we make daily shore landings and maybe even discover smaller inlets by kayak.

Learn about the intriguing and controversial history of the Falkland Islands as we explore the quaint capital of Port Stanley, with its British outpost feel. Near the town you may see Southern giant petrels, the endemic Falkland steamer ducks, kelp gulls and dolphin gulls. There are also black-crowned night herons, red-backed hawks, peregrine falcons and turkey vultures.

As we explore the islands, have your camera at the ready as we look out for the 5 species of penguins found here, large populations of black-browed albatrosses, elephant and fur seals, Peale’s and Commerson’s dolphins, orcas and a myriad of bird species including the Falkland’s flightless steamer duck, imperial shags and Cobb’s wrens.

Day 8 & 9: At Sea

After our exploration of the Falkland Islands, we set sail on a course west, bound for the city of Ushuaia, the most southerly city in the world and the capital of Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire).

Day 10: Disembarkation in Ushuaia

We are scheduled to arrive into Ushuaia early this morning, and we disembark after a final breakfast aboard the Ocean Endeavour.

After saying our farewells to our Expedition Team and the crew of the Ocean Endeavour, we transfer you to the airport for your onward flight, or you may like to spend a extra days in Ushuaia, giving you time to explore this fascinating town and the surrounding areas.
