Antarctica. South Georgia Island. King penguins, whales, seals, sea bears, sea birds photography

Antarctica is a photographers dream. This is huge territory with landscapes of fantastic beauty and scale. Impressions and emotions felt there cannot be forgotten during one's lifetime. And still few photographers managed to reach this region. Recently possibilities have appeared to get there thanks to Russian polar fleet handles regular tourist voyages. These tours are expensive and, as a rule, has low photography effectiveness, because a vessel takes from 50 up to 150 passengers and of course only few of them are photographers. Complete route of a vessel is strictly scheduled; time spent at land at each island is limited and cannot be extended and restricted by rules and prohibitions. Naturally this causes big troubles for PROFESSIONAL wild life and nature photography. We have made a goal to organize expedition which would perfectly suit needs of professional photographers and advanced amateurs, would be overpriced and contained minimum restrictions or limitations for PROFESSIOANL photo sessions. After months of search we have found specialized yacht aimed for such expeditions in extreme conditions of polar waters.

Professional team has made such voyages for years. Among their constant clients are BBC,Royal Geographical Society, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and National Geographic. Today we can charter this yacht and make our dreams come true.
