In addition, several other organizations conducted or supported tourism activities in the Antarctic during the 1999-2000 season. Although some of these organizations are not U.S. based, some American citizens were involved in their planned activities and for this reason are reported here.


SHIPBORNE
  1. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises of Hamburg, Germany, operated two vessels in the Antarctic Peninsula.  The HANSEATIC and the BREMEN conducted 7 cruises each.
  2. Marine Expeditions of Toronto, Canada, conducted approximately 29 cruises to the Antarctic Peninsula using the AKADEMIK IOFFE, the ORLOVA and the AKADEMIK SHULEYKIN.

LANDBASED

Adventure Network International (ANI), a Canadian company with an office in Beaconsfield, England, conducted several 11-17-day excursions to the interior of the Antarctic continent.  Travel from Punta Arenas, Chile, to Adventure Network's Patriot Hills base camp (8020'S, 8120'W) was via a South African chartered C-130 cargo/passenger aircraft.  These various inland excursions occurred during November 1999 - mid-January 2000 using two chartered Twin Otters and their own Cessna C-A185F aircraft.
