Antarctica21 seeks chief flying penguin officer to win free Antarctica cruise

The chief penguin flying officer will get to explore Antarctica on land and sea to learn firsthand about penguins and their habitat
Antarctica21, the adventure travel specialist that pioneered fly-and-sail expeditions to the White Continent, is searching for a chief penguin flying officer to win a free trip.

'Twenty years ago, we introduced an innovative way of traveling to Antarctica,' Antarctica21 President Jaime Vasquez said. 'With a two-hour flight from the tip of South America, visitors can reach the White Continent quickly and in comfort, saving the two-day ship crossing over the rough waters of the Drake Passage. To celebrate our anniversary this year, we are giving one lucky person a chance to win a trip to Antarctica and share in our passion for the continent.'

Win a trip valued at $17,795

From now until March 17, the company is calling on penguin-lovers to apply to win an Antarctica air-cruise in December

Travel will be on the Dec. 7-14, 2023 'Classic Antarctica Air-Cruise' in a single cabin, a $17,795 value. The prize includes the round-trip flight between Punta Arenas, Chile, and Antarctica; five nights on the ship with full board; all guided Zodiac and shore excursions in Antarctica; two nights of lodging in Punta Arenas pre- and post-expedition; and more.

Chief flying penguin officer's duties

Responsibilities of the chief flying penguin officer include traveling to Punta Arenas to join the expedition, attending shipboard presentations by polar wildlife experts and exploring Antarctica on land and sea to learn firsthand about penguins and their habitat. The polar plunge is optional, but recommended.

Applicants need to download the company's Antarctic Penguin Study Guide to learn about penguins, then fill out an entry form, correctly answering the three questions. The winner will be chosen randomly from all qualified entrants and announced March 17.

Participants must be at least 18 to enter.
