Why We Like Her

  • ACTIVITIES

    Across Greg Mortimer itineraries, multiple adventure activities may be offered, including kayaking, camping, snowshoeing, scuba diving, polar snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding, ski touring, rock climbing, and alpine trekking.

  • LOW IMPACT

    This best-in-class new build is especially designed to reduce emissions into the air and sea and promises lower energy consumption, high fuel efficiency, reduced light pollution for minimal wildlife disruption and lower on-board plastic use.

  • TECHNOLOGY

    Beyond its impressive hydraulic viewing platforms and unique bow design, the Greg Mortimer will have state-of-the-art virtual anchoring technology, meaning the ship can hold its position using its own propellers and thrusters while launching Zodiacs and kayaks without disturbing the sea floor.

  • FAMILY-FOCUSED

    Another great feature of the accommodation on the Greg Mortimer are the interconnecting staterooms. If you're part of a family or group who want some privacy, but still want to be close to each other, these staterooms are the perfect option.
