Antarctica Small Ship Cruises
Our Specialty

When choosing an Antarctica vessel, know this: small ships explore where the big ships cannot. Landings are limited to 100 guests on shore. Ships carrying more than 500 guests aren’t allowed to land at all. Smaller is better on Antarctic cruises. Learn how to choose the best cruise and find in depth articles with our detailed Antarctica cruising guide.

The ships we work with carry 72-200 guests ensuring active and intimate explorations. We specialize in this size range because we know from experience it’s the most active, informative and sustainable way to cruise Antarctica. Learn more about the unique ships on our Antarctica expeditions. We’ll find your perfect Antarctica ship.

Antarctica Expeditions
for Every Interest

An expedition is defined as a journey or voyage undertaken by a group of people with a particular purpose. This perfectly captures the spirit of Antarctica small ship expeditions, which focus on daily off-vessel explorations with expert naturalist guides.

Travelers seeking more adventure can book a range of activities including sea kayaking, camping, skiing, snowshoeing, scuba diving or trekking. Learn more about the active things to do in Antarctica. Book early; off-vessel expeditions sell out fast.

Other specialties include luxury Antarctica cruises, Falkland & South Georgia Island cruises and Antarctica fly cruises. Our experts are your guide to the perfect voyage.
