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.

  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.


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.
