Air-Cruise (Boat-Aircraft)

This cruise is different from the rest of the expedition trips since it combines ship and airplane travel. You can depart by airplane and return by ship or the other way round, depart by ship and return by air. The purpose of this option is to avoid the crossing of the Drake Passage or the Sea of Drake. Usually, you sail through this area during the night in order to avoid seasickness and headaches since this is, not always but generally, a rough area. These air-cruises can depart both from Ushuaia or Punta Arenas, although most of the times, they depart from Chile. Combining M/V Ocean Nova with BAE 146 flight is the most popular air-cruise. This high wing airplane was built in Great Britain by British Aerospace and it is capable of landing on short runways, so it is the perfect airplane for the South Pole.
