Suggested clothing List

While cruising in Antarctica excursions are by Zodiac (both cruising and as a means to shore landings) and on foot so it’s important to have a waterproof outer layer, that includes waterproof pants, gloves and hat. Some cruise companies provide a waterproof parka and waterproof expedition boots for the duration of your voyage. Please check with Antarctic Travel Specialists.
