Join Faith Ortins from DUI, and other diving medicine, photography and polar specialists on a truly remarkable educational diving oriented expedition to Antarctica.
We embark in Ushuaia, Argentina and sail through the Drake Passage directly to Antarctica. Along the way we will encounter Humpback and Minke whales all while learning about medical and diving issues unique to the polar region. We will tour glaciers and icebergs on zodiac cruises and set foot on the Antarctic Continent in a magnificent landscape surrounded by alpine peaks and huge glaciers calving at sea level. For divers, this is an opportunity to swim with penguins and leopard seals as well as the unique invertebrate life of Antarctica. And don’t forget claiming your own iceberg! Your adventure will include seminars on photography by world famous underwater videographer Becky Kagan Schott, and diving medicine seminars by Dan Orr. Dan is a published author of numerous books, training programs and is the former president of DAN. This is in addition to all the other marine science and other educational programs on the ship.
