My shared cost Fly-Cruise-Fly Expedition to Antarctica and the Falklands will be taking place from 9-20, January 2018.
There are only 11 cabins with private ensuite facilities for 22 people, so places will be offered on a first-come first-served basis.
And I have secured a US$1000 Early Bird discount, off their published prices, (from the ship operator in Antarctica) for all those people who confirm their applications with a deposit of US$2500 BEFORE 15 Oct 2016.
This is the spacious cabin with private ensuite facilities that we will sleep in
The Repeat Gypsetters
6 Gypsetters who were with me on my Svalbard Sailing Experience in the Arctic Ocean 3 weeks ago, (here) have in fact already paid for and taken 3 cabins, based simply on faith, because they enjoyed the Arctic Experience so much.
How We Will Go About It
Briefly put, we will fly to Antarctica in a chartered plane from Punte Arenas in Chile on 9 Jan 2018 to board our ship in Antarctica, and thus avoid sailing across the Drake Passage. We will save two days by flying, and these extra days will mean we will have more time to explore Antarctica's calm sheltered waters. After 7.5 days visiting and exploring Antarctica, we will sail towards the Falkland Islands, spend one and a half days visiting the Falklands, and then catch another chartered flight on 20 Jan 2018, back to Punte Arenas where we started. This Fly-Cruise-Fly expedition (local flights included in the shared costs) will avoid us having to sail across the sometimes rough Drake Passage.
Early Bird Discount of US$1000
(send me your deposit of US$2500 before 15 Oct 2016)
The Information Pack has just been emailed to all those on my Early Birds List. If anybody wants to beat the early birds deadline, PM me for a copy of the Info Pack.
22 places in 11 cabins with ensuite facilities were available, but 8 of my friends have already taken 4 cabins, leaving only 7 cabins for 14 people still available. If you confirm your participation and send me your deposit of US$2500 before 15 Oct 2016, to enable me to TT your deposits to the Shipowners before 18 Oct 2016, the ship owners will give you an Early Bird Discount of US$1000 which can be taken off the final installment of your payments in June 30 next year. Yes, you can pay your shared costs of this amazing safari in installments, and you can even pay via PayPal.
