Nikon Super Tele for Polar Bears

Hey Everyone,
This is my first post on dpreview
I'm off to the Arctic on a cruise around Svlabard and naturally I'm taking my camera.
I'll have: Nikon D300 / D800, 24-70 2.8, 70-200MM 2.8 VR II
I expect I'll need a focal length greater than 200mm on DX so I've got a choice of the following:
The 1,4 // 1,7 or 2 x Teleconverters on the 70-200 2.8 VR II
Rent a Nikon 200-400 F4 VR (Mark i)
I'm wondering if I can just get by with the 1.7 or 2x Tele as it will be 1/4 of the cost of renting the 200-400mm
Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
