Go beyond the surface: soar above and dive deep belowAntarctica

Breathtakingly beautiful and shrouded in mystery, Antarctica is a diverse and wonderful destination that can be discovered in a multitude of different ways.

With Scenic Eclipse’s on board Helicopter and Submarine excursions, it’s possible for guests to see the stark beauty of this remote part of planet Earth from exclusive angles.

Soar high above the white wonder of Antarctica as you venture beyond the horizon in our state-of-the-art Airbus EC-130-T2 helicopters, which seat up to six guests. Imagine the exciting thrill of flying over icebergs, or journeying further out across Antarctica than most travellers will ever be able to.

Guests on board Scenic Eclipse will also get the chance to dive deep down into the ocean in our U-Boat Worx Cruise Submarine 7. Our Submarine can seat up to six guests, and is custom-built for the optimal sightseeing experience.
