Embark on a Polar Expedition to one of the most remote regions of the world aboard intimate yachts that combine relaxed luxury with highly personalized service and destination immersions. Prepare for the journey of a lifetime aboard an ambiance of connection, excitement and inspiration.
Classified as Polar Category C and Ice Class 1B, our yachts are made for experiencing Antarctica to the max. World Voyager ™, World Traveller ™ and World Navigator ® have been designed to operate at polar surface temperatures and ice- strengthened to safely bring you to landings amid the Antarctic Peninsula, South Shetland Islands, Falkland Islands and surrounding regions, and cross the Antarctic Circle.
Exploring Antarctica is a life-changing experience and it’s even better when you cultivate personal moments with the environment and your fellow travelers. With fewer than 200 guests on every expedition, it’s easy to connect with like-minded explorers in an intimate atmosphere. Gather at Water’s Edge, sitting just 30 feet above the sea’s surface, with a craft cocktail or beer in hand and watch a whale breach the surface. Cruise amid the ice floes on a Zodiac safari and feel a sense of wonder overcome you as Gentoo penguins swim alongside.
Offering 270-degree and overhead views, The Dome offers the perfect perspective of Antarctica from every angle. Take in the sight of glaciers and icebergs from all around as you swap stories of adventures with your companions. Rugged peaks along the landscape inspire a sense of discovery that leaves you eager to step on shore and explore the Seventh Continent for yourself.
Every accommodation comes with complimentary binoculars to use on board. From your private balcony, look to the skies to find the black-browed albatross, considered the “Prince of the Clouds,” or keep an eye out for snow petrels. It’s easy to appreciate the view of the White Continent coming closer as our polar-class yachts approach landing, bringing you to exciting adventures.
From the mud room, zip up your parka and lace on your boots to disembark the ship and board your Zodiac, launching you into adventures ashore and in the water. The mud room is more than storage for your exploring gear. It’s where paddling, kayaking and standup paddling excursions commence. It’s the transitional space between ship and shore, where every expedition landing begins and where you return to share your stories.
After a full day of trekking glacier paths, consciously interacting with the environment and becoming acquainted with the wildlife, the mud room welcomes you back. Drop off your gear and head straight to Après Sea – which may even start in the mud room with Mud Slingers – to toast and brag about your impressive experiences.
