Jimmy to perform rare Antarctica concert as part of an 11-day musical expedition
December 2 – December 12, 2022
Insider Expeditions, a premier travel company, is excited to announce “Adventure to Antarctica with performances by Jimmy Buffett,” a once-in-a-lifetime musical voyage to the far side of the world. Jimmy Buffett and a few of his Coral Reefer friends will participate in a concert expedition to the southernmost seas in early December 2022. Known for being a sailor, captain, and frequent traveler to remote and exotic places around the world, Antarctica is one of the few places still on Jimmy’s bucket list. This is the chance for 150 lucky travelers to check it off theirs, too. Jimmy is donating his time and legendary talent to this experience to help raise funds and awareness for ocean conservation. Omaze, the online fundraising platform, is also giving away two tickets for one winner to join the voyage with a guest. Donations from the experience will support Ocean Conservancy and Singing for Change, working to preserve the world oceans.
The group will meet in stunning Buenos Aires, Argentina, where they will kick off the trip with a one night hotel stay and welcome dinner for all travelers. The next morning a chartered plane will take the group to the Southernmost City in the World, Ushuaia, Argentina, where they will board one of the newest and most luxurious vessels in the polar regions – the World Navigator – and set sail towards Antarctica and the South Shetland Islands. One of the most environmentally friendly ships at sea, the World Navigator employs a clean-burning hybrid, electric-hydro propulsion and an anchorless positioning system. The fans will cruise along ice-filled fjords and among spectacular icebergs in the company of seabirds, penguins, seals, and whales, as well as enjoy expert-led discussions on the wildlife, geology, and conservation of the remarkable region.
Multiple concert experiences are scheduled, including one actually on the seventh continent, which will be one of the very few concerts ever to happen in Antarctica. Jimmy will be joined by 10-time CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally and other Coral Reefer friends throughout the voyage. Also scheduled - A Seventh Continent conversation with Jimmy, musical workshops with Coral Reefers, Zodiac landings and excursions around Antarctica, plus plenty of special surprises for the approximately 150 fans lucky enough to join the expedition.
The voyage will support and bring awareness to the important work and mission of several organizations who protect the world’s Oceans and its inhabitants. Ocean Conservancy, who are dedicated to building ocean health and resilience as well as advancing science-based solutions to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges; and, Singing for Change, a non-profit launched by Jimmy in 1995, will direct their funds to Save the Manatee Club and The Everglades Foundation.
This trip is designed and led by Insider Expeditions, a premier travel company that specializes in curating and hosting one-of-a-kind experiences for groups and individuals around the globe, and often raises funds for charities and causes as a part of their programs.
