Why We Like Her

  • SKIP THE DRAKE

    Designed and operated by the original pioneers of the Antarctic Fly & Cruise concept, the Magellan Explorer allows you to fly to the Peninsula and skip the oft-dreaded Drake Passage crossing.

  • SIZE

    Limited to a maximum of only 73 passengers per departure, you’ll get more time off the ship and out in the elements, either on shore or in Zodiacs.

  • FITNESS

    The fitness center aboard Magellan Explorer has been designed and built by the professionals at Anytime Fitness, the world’s only fitness company with boutique gyms in all seven continents.
