We took the Patrick Watts tour on 14th January. It turned out to be better than what Patrick had promised in his e mail or what we had expected.
From the moment we got off the tender at the pier, we were taken complete care...More
We booked our trip a year in advance knowing how quickly Patrick gets booked up. As we were coming from the UK we had the added bonus of a reduced rate for paying in £Sterling and our actual cost was 2/3 less than our cruise...More
We did this tour with Tony Smith. It's a long drive to Volunteer point (3 hours, half of it off road) but it's well worth it. There are so many King penguins at this place that we were happy to wander around for 3 hours.
