Solar Eclipse 2021: Live from Antarctica!

We're thrilled to share the experience

All three of our polar expedition ships in Antarctica—National Geographic ResolutionNational Geographic Endurance, and National Geographic Explorer—were in the path of this solar eclipse on December 4th aboard our 24-day Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falklands expedition. Our guests, expedition teams, and shipboard photographers were among the few non-penguins present at this exciting and fleeting phenomenon, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring you along on our state-of-the-art ships' newest broadcast centers to learn from our experts.


See some of the amazing video, and the world’s first professional images, straight from the Southern Ocean!

We'll get you in the right spot, and we'll be sure you and your camera are ready to go when the big moment arrives.
