During the southern hemisphere’s summer, approx. from November to March inclusive, Green Explorer I will be based partly in Punta Arenas and partly on the sheltered King George Island at the northern tip of the Antarctica Peninsula. A chartered plane will fly the owners and their guests from Punta Arenas to and from the vessel to avoid the 5-6 days return journey across the often very windy and bumpy Drake’s Passage.
The local summer cruising areas of Green Explorer I thus include both the 1.500km coast of Southern Chile and the 1.200km Antarctic Peninsula – both areas are blessed with countless incredible fjords, bays, sounds, channels, islands and peninsulas. The summer cruising here will take place in fully or fairly sheltered areas in the midnight sun or “white nights”.
