Chartering in Antarctica:
Antarctica is a fragile and fascinating place. If you are looking for an out of the ordinary travel experience, this is the chance of a lifetime. Antarctica is unlike any other destination, this majestic place is beautiful and an awe-inspiring, pristine environment.
This is the last frontier on earth. Antarctica is 1.3 times as large as Europe, and twice the size of Australia, yet only a lucky few will ever get to experience the continents true beauty. While there are limited humans inhabiting this white wonderland, it is home to wildlife such as penguins, seals, whales and other sea creatures who have found remarkable ways to survive in the coldest, driest, windiest place on earth. With motor yacht BIG_FISH, you will be able to enjoy a once a lifetime opportunity experiencing the indescribable scenery and in style and luxury.
A layer of ice up to two miles thick covers a continent as big as the United States and Mexico combined. Antarctic ice contains 70% of the world’s fresh water (90% of the world’s ice). If it were divided up, every person on Earth could have a chunk of ice larger than the Great Pyramid. Although 98% of Antarctica is ice, there is land underneath the ice cover, unlike the Arctic where the ice floats on top of the ocean.
Antarctica also has more than 70 sub glacial lakes under the ice. Ice bergs and ice flows are a large part of the incredible scenery that makes up this frozen white desert. Icebergs are carved and polished into strange shapes and sizes and chunks of ice with eerie blue patterns floating by are formed by the forces of nature.
While on your charter you may get to experience the roar of moving glaciers echoing between icy cliffs and see massive rock and ice formations reflected in the still waters or perhaps even see the world’s southernmost active volcano, Mount Erebus, fuming on Ross Island.
For six months every year, the sun shines 24 hours a day at the South Pole, this is when motor yacht BIG FISH plans to charter in the area. The sky glows with the southern lights, or aurora australis. There is phenomenon such as ‘diamond dust’, which are clouds made of tiny ice crystals, and ‘sun dogs’, which are bright spots beside the actual sun. This harsh continent is magical and unforgettable.
With the guide onboard luxury explorer BIG FISH you will have the chance learn about the wildlife, historical sites, active research bases and the heroic explorers that first voyaged to the South Pole. Today Antarctica is a place today of vital exploration and research, with projects ranging from ecology to life in space.
