On November 2010, Doug Stoup leads an intimate sailing adventure to the Antarctic Peninsula upon the Yacht Australis.

This voyage is a commercial expedition.

This is a 23-day adventure which sets off from Ushuaia, at the southern tip of Argentina and will return to the harbour. Doug and his clioents will head across the famous (and often dangerous) Drake Passage for a series of stopovers on the remote Antarctic Peninsula.

Doug and the crew will visit penguin rookeries, stop for multiple ski objectives, and explore the area in depth using Zodiac watercraft.

Adventurers will be treated to rare wildlife sightings as they travel through the natural habitat of multple species of whales, birds, penguins, and seals.

The trip will conclude after 22 nights when the ship sails back across the Drake Passage and past the majestic cliffs of Cape Horn to enter port in Ushuaia.
