The Quest for Antarctica

Hello all,
I am just getting out into the world of professional yachting, I have my RYA Yachtmaster offshore and am looking to get my Ocean soon.
My overall goal is to work on a yacht based somewhere in the southern hemisphere doing trips to the Antarctic, possibly dive or film support or simply taking tourists out. To be honest I don't mind what the job entails, but I do know that is where I wish to work.

Does anyone have High latitude experience or work in this sector of the industry and could give me any advice?

There are several charter boats working out of Puerto Williams in Chile, google them and see if they need crew.
