Part of what keeps the Arctic such a pure destination is visitors’ commitment to ensure no invasive or non-native species find their way to the region. But any and all precautions explorers take before stepping foot on Arctic lands helps reduce the spread of such species.
As responsible global citizens, we set out to lessen our footprint in this pristine destination. We always make the effort to show respect for all, from the ecosystems to the wildlife we encounter. Taking these careful actions helps us keep the environment thriving for today’s explorers and future generations.
Our intimate yachts realize the possibilities of environmental stewardship with the latest hybrid power management and propulsion systems, maximizing fuel efficiency and consuming as low as one-fifth the fuel compared to conventional cruise-ship systems, reducing our impact on the environment. That’s a win for all. What makes the Arctic so enthralling is the unspoiled beauty. We minimize underwater noise that stresses marine wildlife by using a hydro-jet propulsion system that allows our ships to cruise virtually silent up to five knots for incomparable, up-close encounters while keeping the sensitive ecosystem in mind.
It’s our responsibility to prevent damage to the fragile ecosystems on ocean floors. That’s why we avoid using anchors to maintain ship position by using a GPS-based Dynamic Position System.
It’s important to make the effort to keep waterways clear for a cleaner environment. By building our ships with the latest and most advanced waste management and water treatment plant in the cruise industry, we take the proper steps to control waste on board. That includes storing litter that cannot be repurposed or reclaimed in a dedicated hold until landing, where it will be disposed of responsibly.
