Greeting Hundreds of Whales Near Coronation Island

In this exhilarating moment caught on camera, a ‘superpod’ of hundreds of fin whales surrounds the National Geographic Explorer, their misty exhalations decorating the air in every direction. Spontaneously magical moments like this one can happen at any time on expedition in Antarctica. Experience all the wildlife and wonder of this incomparable region this year—we have recently secured coveted new dates during the October and November 2022 early season, a magical time few ever get to experience.
