Antarctica Gay Expedition

A Very Cool Gay Cruise Along The Antarctica Peninsula

To commemorate a decade of journeys, Out Adventures returns to Antarctica on a polar gay cruise. This was the place that actually inspired the company, so it’s a sentimental journey for us. After boarding the World Explorer we’ll cross the notorious Drake Passage and make our way to the South Shetland Islands and the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. This once-in-a-lifetime gay expedition will have you enjoying sub-zero safaris, otherworldly hikes, whale watching, and — if you’re brave enough — a Polar Plunge. Though we join a larger expedition aboard the World Explorer, we’ve arranged exclusive excursions and events for you. Interested in checking Antarctica off your bucket list in 2019? Well, we’re the ONLY gay tour operator with space available this year. Book now!

ITINERARY

Day 1 Ushuaia

Hola! Welcome to Argentina. Surrounded by sea and mountains, Ushuaia is the world’s southernmost city and a perfect departure point for our cruise expedition. Things kick off tonight with a group meeting, followed by a Welcome Dinner.

Day 2 Ushuaia and Embarkation Day

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before check-out today, then we’ll board the World Explorer this afternoon. After we pass through the historic Beagle Channel, which transects the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, we’ll bid farewell to land for a couple of days.

Day 3-4 Crossing the Drake Passage

Prepare for rough water, but hope for smooth sailing: the Drake Passage is unpredictable, but you’re in good hands with our professional Expedition Team. Spend this time getting to know fellow shipmates, attending safety briefings, and finding out what lies ahead.
