For decades I have felt that for anyone with an interest in birds and nature, the three most important areas of the world to try to see in one's lifetime are the Amazon River, East Africa, and Antarctica. In my opinion, these three destinations offer the greatest combinations anywhere of birds, wildlife, and scenery.

I will never forget my first trip to Antarctica in 1987. I had heard about Antarctica for years from the late Roger Tory Peterson, but I was nevertheless unprepared for the amazing experiences that awaited me: huge albatrosses flying close at eye level, flocks of gorgeous black and white Cape Petrels circling the ship, Zodiac landings near colonies of hundreds of thousands of King Penguins, huge icebergs, whales, Southern Elephant Seals and Antarctic Fur Seals, and overpowering visual scenery.  Then, as now with our Antarctica voyages, our itinerary included South Georgia Island and the Falkland Islands. Including these South Atlantic outposts on our trips is essential, as this is where most of the penguins and other birds and wildlife are found. Since that initial trip, I have been to Antarctica ten times. I regard those experiences unequivocally as some of the best of my life.

Although time before departure is getting short, I hope you will consider taking advantage of this amazing opportunity.
