But, alongside the work there is a lot of fun, lectures, potential for workshops, and definitely excellent diving.

Event type: Dive trip

Event website: https://bluegreenexpeditions.com/bookings/

This is not a GUE-exclusive trip.

Description:
Join Faith Ortins, from Blue Green Expeditions, and other polar diving specialists, on an amazing expedition to Antarctica! Joining us on this incredible journey will be leaders from GUE who will be on the trip doing Project Baseline programs. We arrive February 3, 2021, in Ushuaia, Argentina for an overnight stay. Then, on February 4, 2021, we will enjoy either a half-day tour of Tierra Del Fuego National Park, or a half-day of diving, before embarking on our journey aboard the majestic m/v Plancius to Antarctica. We will sail through the Drake Passage tracing the path of the early polar explorers who first braved these regions. Along the way, we might encounter Humpback and Minke whales breaching in the sea as well as albatrosses and many other birds that will accompany us on our journey. We will tour glaciers and icebergs on zodiac cruises exploring areas few people have ever seen before. Amongst the epic landscape of mammoth glaciers and wind carved snow live colonies of thousands of penguins nesting on these islands. Divers will experience the opportunity to swim with penguins and leopard seals as well as seeing the unique invertebrate life of Antarctica.

Description:
This GUE diving adventure is exclusive to GUE Members and offers an incredible range of experiences as well as unique insight into the environmental challenges facing the polar regions. Join GUE principals, including President Jarrod Jablonski, and an expedition staff of geologists, marine biologists, cetacean scientists, ornithologists, and professionals from other disciplines. Participants can also support dedicated Project Baseline dive sites during the expedition as we coordinate with scientists at Palmer Science Station to determine areas that would best benefit from ongoing research.
 
Start your 12-day trip with a day-long tour of Tierra Del Fuego National Park in Argentina before sailing the Drake Passage and tracing the path of early polar explorers. Witness the splendor of humpback and minke whales breaching the sea amid the many albatross and other birds, all while touring a magnificent series of glaciers and icebergs. Dive among thousands of penguins in addition to leopard seals and a wide range of unique invertebrates. Non-divers and snorkelers are welcome to join specially organized trips.

 This trip is in partnership with Blue Green Expeditions. All proceeds go towards supporting GUE’s nonprofit mission. This unique adventure will sell out quickly, so reserve your spot soon!
