Punta Arenas to King George Island

With a surge in explorer yachts being built voyages to remote destinations are becoming increasingly popular. This is especially true of Antarctica which has just recorded its busiest superyacht season ever. One of the most incredible ice destinations in the world there is no shortage of amazing spectacles to see.

Here EYOS Expeditions — who arrange bespoke superyacht trips and who organised Arctic P’s record breaking voyage south — give an overview of the best way to spend 10 days in the breathtaking region.

Day one - Punta Arenas to King George Island

Crossing the Drake Passage by air instead of by sea will provide a safe, fast and efficient crossing of this infamous stretch of water, often quoted as the roughest seas on earth. The use of a multi-engine jet aircraft cuts the crossing down from two days to just a couple of hours as you fly directly from Punta Arenas, Chile, to King George Island. This is perhaps one of the most exclusive trans-continental flights.

You will be landing on the airstrip belonging to the Chilean Presidente Eduardo Frei M base. Russia’s Bellinghausen base is located nearby, and you may have the opportunity for a quick visit. Transfer to the waterfront where Zodiacs will take you to your luxury yacht for embarkation.
