Discover the Wildlife of Antarctica

Meet The Penguins

Penguins are the most common birds in the Antarctic. Living in colonies with populations larger than some cities, and surviving in the harshest of conditions, it is no wonder that penguins are seen as the emblem of the Great White Continent. However, of the 17 different species of penguin, only two (emperor and Adélie) make the Antarctic continent their true home, although others (chinstrap, gentoo and macaroni) breed on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, where conditions are less harsh.

Wonderful Whales

A favourite among Antarctica cruise-goers, whales are beautiful, enigmatic and fascinating creatures. Highly intelligent with complex social lives, Antarctica whales capture the imagination of all who witness the spectacle. Few sights on Earth can beat seeing a pod of orcas or seeing a Humpback breaching the surface of the water. Almost 75% of the world’s orcas live in Antarctica, which is truly a paradise for whales.

Antarctica's Six Seals

One of the joys of an Antarctica cruise is being able to observe seals up close. Whilst only six of the 35 species of seal live in Antarctica, Antarctic Fur Seals, Leopard Seals, Ross Seals, Crabeater Seals and Weddell Seals, these six species actually make up the vast majority of all seals on Earth.
