Antarctic Flyover

By: KC

Reviewed on: 31 Mar 2019

This was the most amazing and enjoyable journey. I booked it on the spur of the moment via Main Beach Travel. I’m thrilled that I did so. From the happy throng at the departure gate, the welcome from the Captain’s Choice staff and interactions with them including photos with the penguin (!) it was obvious that this was not going to be any ordinary flight. The excitement was palpable. It’s not everyday you can say, “I’m going to Antarctica!”. The welcome continued with the very friendly air crew. Over the course of the journey their service and unflagging enthusiasm for their passengers enjoyment was constantly demonstrated. I enjoyed interacting with them and seeing the happiness of a first time flyover crew member. The plentiful food was outstanding. My favourite drink, bubbles, flowed. And a raffle and auction in the air - what fun! The interaction among the passengers was excellent as we took our turn enjoying the most stunning, incredible scenery below. Amazing day. Don’t miss it!
