Scenic has launched new Antarctic helicopter experiences for guests sailing onboard its expedition yacht, Scenic Eclipse.
Using two helicopters housed onboard the 200-passenger Eclipse, Scenic will offer guests ice landings, skiing sessions and mountain trips as part of its 2022/23 programme for the region.
The ship’s submarine, Scenic Neptune, will also offer the chance for passengers to dive up to 300m below the South Georgian Sea.
Among Scenic’s new programme is the 19-day Into the Weddell Sea itinerary, which leads in at £14,785pp.
During the sailing, departing 19 December 2022, guests will experience 24 hours of daylight, see Weddell seals while kayaking and ride around glacier calves onboard a Zodiac boat.
Lisa Bolton, Scenic’s general manager of product, said the helicopter and submarine excursion would be “truly unforgettable” experiences.
Scenic is currently offering savings of up to 20% on selected 2022/23 Eclipse voyages when booked and paid in full 12 months prior to departure.
All new 2022/23 bookings are covered by Scenic’s flexible booking policy, enabling guests to defer their cruise to another travel date or itinerary up to 60 days prior to departure.
