The whale science voyage with Polar Latitudes

The whale science voyage with Polar Latitudes

14 days | Antarctic Peninsula

This 14-day voyage aboard Island Sky features a team of scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI*), the world’s leading independent non-profit organisation dedicated to ocean research, who will be conducting a groundbreaking study on the feeding habits of humpback whales.

Humpbacks migrate thousands of kilometres to their feeding ground in the Southern Ocean, yet nothing is known about how these whales find the krill that they consume. Guests on board will have the opportunity to participate as the scientists track whales and collect data. In addition to ongoing briefings on the study’s progress, guests can sit in on a panel discussion on The Future of the Antarctic, featuring the WHOI Team; Polar Latitudes’ own whale expert, Annette Bombosch PhD; and special guest, Peter Neill, the founding Director of the World Ocean Observatory.

The voyage also features all the activities of a normal Antarctic Peninsula departure; a brochure with complete details is available.
