Fly & Sail is a scientific expedition format in which we combine a flight to/from Antarctica and a crossing of the Drake Passage. This is an ideal trip for those who have dreamed of sailing through the Drake Passage, but are not ready to do it 2 times in one expedition.The Starlink satellite system is on board and will provide wireless internet throughout the voyage.
Unlike a large cruise liner with thousands of tourists, the Eldorado can accommodate only 17 people at a time, along with the crew. This allows us to preserve the privacy of the meeting with Antarctica and not to harm the fragile ecosystem of the polar region. Besides, the format of the expedition on a sailing ship allows us to get acquainted with Antarctica as close as possible: to get close to the blue icebergs, to see whales at arm's length and to visit polar stations of different countries.
