Antarctica closely guards some of the most unique and rewarding kayaking opportunities on the planet. Poseidon Expeditions offers kayaking as an optional activity on our Antarctic cruises.
While the polar regions offer all the pristine wilderness values and incredible wildlife that could be desired of a perfect kayaking adventure, their remoteness and inaccessibility mean that few people have the opportunity to experience the thrill and serenity of kayaking in these amazing places.
Wherever in Antarctica you go kayaking, safety should be a primary concern in these extreme environments. On a cruise with a reputable operator, you can expect paddling groups to be kept together and closely supervised by an expert kayak guide and accompanied at all times by an armed polar bear guard in a dedicated safety Zodiac. Regardless, the unpredictable polar environment requires kayakers to be on their game at all times.
