AE Expeditions and a group of UK travel agents have just returned from a trip to Antarctica.

Agents from Polar Routes, Distinctive Americas, Cruise Select, Travelwise, Arcturus and Aqua-Firma experienced the company’s Antarctic Explorer Express itinerary from 10-18 February onboard the company’s new, purpose-built vessel, the Sylvia Earle.

The nine-day voyage offered an action-packed time in the Antarctic Peninsula, filled with wildlife encounters including penguin, whale and seal sightings, and Zodiac excursions.

Some of the agents also took part in adventure activity programmes, including snorkelling and sea kayaking.

Andy Tait, Senior Business Development Manager at AE Expeditions, who hosted the group, said:

“It was fantastic to be able to welcome these top-performing agents onboard for an unforgettable adventure to Antarctica.

“We hope they disembarked having a deeper understanding of the AE Expeditions difference, with our small ships, relaxed atmosphere and focus on adventure and immersion in some of the world’s wildest places.”

AE Expeditions travels to Antarctica from October through April.

The company offers immersive, small-ship expeditions with a maximum of 132 passengers on each of their two ships, the Greg Mortimer and the Sylvia Earle.

With a focus on exploration, discovery and respectful travel they journey to the world’s wildest and most remarkable destinations, including Antarctica, the Arctic, Costa Rica, Panama, Patagonia and Scotland.

The small-ship expedition operator experienced 53% growth out of the UK and Ireland last year.
