This 14-day itinerary had 9-days at sea. Ports of call included Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, Port Stanley, Puerto Madryn and Montevideo.  We set up airport/ship transfers and a half day sightseeing tour in Buenos Aires upon arrival with A&K. Good overview of the city.

Ushuaia, Argentina was a delightful port – we took Crystal’s National Park Trek & Canoe shore excursion – well organized with fun guides.  Port Stanley, Falkland Islands is a quiet port – only 3,000 people live in the Falklands. The only experience here is seeing the penguins – we chose a four hour 4x4 excursion (1 hr drive each way) to see the Rockhopper penguins . . .  Up-close and personal!

Puerto Madryn, Argentina – we chose to use a private car and driver went to Punta Tombo which is a peninsula into the Atlantic Ocean 110 km south of Trelew in Chubut Province, Argentina, where there is a large colony of Magellanic penguins (600,000) - the largest such colony in South America.  Montevideo, Uruguay – a beautiful port city.  We arranged for a full day tour with private guide and driver.

We arranged ship/airport transfers and a Polo Tour Experience at La Martina on final day of disembarkation in Buenos Aires with A&K.  Two hours of Polo Clinics followed by real experience on horseback then a delightful lunch of homemade Argentine cuisine served under the trees with the family, surrounded by nature and stunning views.  The day was excellent!!
