Traveling to Antarctica by ship has its challenges.

Stormy seas, large waves, wind, icebergs, and the crossing of the most confused water on earth — the Drake Passage — there is no other experience quite like it.

The Ocean Tramp is a 22-meter aluminum hulled ketch built for these waters. She is captained by two skilled mariners, Fede and Laura of Quixote Expeditions.

Each voyage on the Ocean Tramp is committed to bringing awareness to those sailing with Quixote Expeditions.

Scientists of different disciplines are noting the fragile conditions concerning these remote regions.

New ideas of how to better understand this area will help us preserve and protect these pristine environments.
