Join us aboard the magnificent Ocean Endeavour on this 10-day Antarctic whale journey, as we set sail from Ushuaia, destination Antarctica, in search of whales – the giants and rulers of the Southern Ocean. As we enter the frozen wilderness of the White Continent, amazing, sculptured icebergs, thunderous calving glaciers, imposing mountain ranges and ice-strewn waters, all lie in wait. Explore on foot, by kayak, snowshoe and Zodiac. Sailing and cruising by Zodiac, we scan the icy waters for the silhouettes of these mighty marine mammals as they glide alongside the vessels or surface the waters in a spectacular breach. Can you imagine the thrill and excitement of kayaking alongside one of these majestic creatures? Not forgetting encounters with curious penguins, basking seals and many fascinating seabirds. This is the trip of a lifetime for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers alike.

DAVE BROSHA // LEADER
Holding a passion for the world and an eye for the beauty it contains, Long Creek, Prince Edward Island based, award-winning commercial, personal, and adventure photographer Dave Brosha is on a continual journey to seek out and capture the beauty of this world – whether it’s the beauty of some of the most extreme and pristine environments in the world, or the beauty of some of a person’s most personal moments. In addition to living throughout northern Canada for much of his life, Dave – along with his beautiful wife, Erin, and three children – have also lived in Asia and have traveled extensively through both the many provinces and territories of their native country and numerous countries abroad.

PAUL ZIZKA // LEADER
Specializing in photographing in difficult conditions and hard-to-reach places, Paul has a passion for shooting alpine sports and backcountry experiences, capturing the spirit of adventurers and finding unusual angles of common mountain subjects. As a landscape photographer, he particularly enjoys the challenge of capturing nature’s beauty at night and the unique features that come with a dark sky – stars, Northern Lights and dramatic silhouettes. Paul’s award-winning photos have been featured in a variety of publications, including National Geographic, Maclean’s, Alpinist, Huffington Post, The Guardian, Islands, and Climbing magazine.
