Safety
For All

Keep Explorers &
Antarctica Safe

While journeying through the Seventh Continent is an exciting endeavor, it’s important to keep your and your fellow explorers’ safety in mind, as well as the safety of the wildlife. Keep these tips in mind to practice conscious travel and make memories while remaining secure.

Purpose-Built Yachts

When traveling to regions where there is a possibility of extreme conditions, such as weather, ice and natural phenomena, your safety is our top priority. That’s why our yachts are purpose-built as Polar Category C and Ice Class 1B and perfectly engineered for safely navigating beyond the Antarctic Circle.

Follow the Leader

Our expedition team takes you to Antarctica’s shores via Zodiac. Before stepping foot on these vessels, they will brief you on protocols for embarking, disembarking, and riding to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. It’s important you follow their instructions at all times as they guide you through your journey.

Excursion Safety

For sea kayaking, paddling, and standup paddling, a kayak master or expedition leader guides your adventures through Antarctica’s waters to ensure a safe and fun experience. A Zodiac driver also follows close behind on these excursions in case of emergencies to respond quickly. Camping and hiking activities on shore include up to 3 expedition team members to help guide you through your excursions and instruct you on proper interactions with the wildlife and environment. Our camping excursion for Antarctica also includes an emergency tent. Rest assured you have backup on your adventure with safety staff and a doctor on standby at the gangway.

Keeping The Wildlife Safe

Please remember, we want to do our best to keep the wildlife safe as well. Make sure to maintain a safe distance of at least 15 feet at all times. We don’t want to scare the animals away, so make sure to keep noise to a minimum and never touch or feed them. The best way to ensure we maintain the balance of this fragile ecosystem is by leaving very few footprints behind. Enjoy the full Antarctica experience by admiring and appreciating all it has to offer and minimizing disturbances in the environment.
