Antarctica in February

February is Antarctica’s most active wildlife month as all wildlife maximises the Austral summer’s brief window. Penguin chicks start fledging and learning to swim, skuas and leopard seals are predating, and whale sightings become common.

5 Reasons to Visit Antarctica in February

The penguin chicks are now very active and curious, chasing both parents for food as soon as they return from fishing trips

It’s peak whale spotting season as all migrating pods have now made it down to Antarctica’s rich waters

February is the perfect month to reach the Polar Circle, now that the ice has receded to its maximum extent

The moulting stage begins for the adult penguins, while the chicks are fledging and learning to swim in the shallows

The focus of the Humpback whales now changes, becoming more inquisitive now they’ve sated their appetite
