Snares Islands

1/28/2021


The Snares Islands are a subantarctic island group that became UNESCO World Heritage in 1998, because of the unique flora and fauna. The Snares lie south of Bluff, New Zealand's southernmost city. The Snares are considered as so called "minimum impact islands" meaning landings are not permitted unless the Department of Conservation issues a special permit. The Snares consist of one Main Island (North East Island) that is surrounded by several smaller islands and rocks (e.g. Broughton Island, Alert Stack, the Daption Islands in the north), and a group of islands that are known as the Western Chain. All islands of the Snares group are bordered by steep cliffs except a few eastern parts. The climate is mainly influenced by a warm current coming in from Australia and the mean annual temperature is a mild 11°C.

Macquarie Island, one of Australia's subantarctic islands and a site of outstanding geological significance on a world scale, has recently been added to the World Heritage List for its geological wonder. It is the only island in the world composed entirely of oceanic crust and rocks from the mantle - deep below the earth's surface. Macquarie Island is recognized for its rich and diverse animal life. Around 3.5 million seabirds arrive on Macquarie Island each year to breed and moult. Most of these are penguins. The Macquarie Island Nature Reserve covers the main island, surrounding islands, and includes all of the ocean surrounding the island out to a distance of 3 nautical miles. Macquarie Island is an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is listed on the Register of the National Estate. The Macquarie Island World Heritage Area includes the Island and surrounding waters out to a distance of 12 nautical miles. A scientific station on the Island is operated by the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) on behalf of the Commonwealth Government.

If the thought of an Antarctic cruise holiday makes your teeth chatter, you might be surprised to know that, during the November-to-March season, temperatures usually range between twenty degrees and forty-five degrees Fahrenheit. Highs in the fifties are not uncommon. As a rule, the Falkland Islands are a bit warmer, with average highs in the fifties and lows in the forties to high thirties. Weather on South Georgia Island is harder to predict. Its rugged topography makes for highly changeable weather patterns, with dull rain followed by fine sunny days. Tie your hat on! Sudden, intense katabatic winds and short-lived squalls known locally as "williwaws" are a fact of life on South Georgia. What will you see on your Antarctic journey? Sights change rapidly during the austral summer season. Local flora and fauna must pack a lot of living into these few warm months, so each cruise departure is, in effect, travelling to a different Antarctica, Falklands, or South Georgia Island. November to early December offers the spectacular courtship rituals of penguins and seabirds, wildflowers on the Falklands and South Georgia, and the highest level of research activity. Mid-December to January see the emergence of penguin chicks and seal pups, escalating whale sightings, and longer days creating incredible light conditions for photography. February to March bring whale sightings at their best, blooming snow algae, and increasingly numerous fur seals on the Antarctic Peninsula. Though it isn't a passive destination, rest assured that travel to the Deep South doesn't require great physical exertion or feats of special fitness.

Antarctic Peninsula

The Antarctic Peninsula thrusts out past the Antarctic Circle, lunging vainly towards the Andes, across the infamous Drake Passage. As far as the Antarctic is concerned, the peninsula is the most densely populated location on the continent, sprinkled with vast research bases and minute outposts alike. At the height of the summer season, the human population numbers over 3,000 - not counting tourists. That figure shrinks to less than 1,000 during the intensely chilly winter.
