Antarctica Transportation: 83 reviews and 163 photos
If your ship has provision for excursions in the Antarctic, it is almost certain that you will be making them in a zodiac: they are used for transport to and from shore, and for general sightseeing.
Zodiac travel is enjoyable and invigorating. On our cruise, some people were concerned about stepping from the ship's gangway into and out of the zodiac - you can expect to find a strong fit crewmember there to help you as necessary. What you do need to know is that, depending on sea conditions, there can be some spray - so make sure you wear waterproof outer clothing, with something warm beneath. Similarly, have some protection for your camera gear.
As you can see in the main photo (taken near the French base at Dumont d'Urville), when there is something worth photographing, it all becomes a little busy! In these circumstances, it is a matter of passengers applying mutual courtesy in their movements.
