A Different Way to Do Antarctica

Recommended Posts

I saw sail boats down there.  Our guide said that they were not IAATO members and if they showed up before an IAATO member, the IAATO member ship wouldn't disembark. I thought that was rude.  

However, it does look like a great experience for a cheap price.  (relatively)

I stand corrected. It may have only been some that we saw.  Or my leader may have been trying to sound more important.  I did notice that this website did not list being an IAATO member that I could see, but had "scheduled stops" that are only available to IAATO members (like Port Lockery).

That actually looks really cool!  Can't be that many passengers. Some great pics on that website!
