  • Ice Class: 1A
  • Cruising Speed: 12 knots in open water

Note: there is no passenger elevator between decks

WHY WE LIKE HER

  • ALL-INCLUSIVE

    All-inclusive service - beginning with the 2018-19 season all gratuities are included, and House wine and non-premium beers are included at dinner.

  • ICE ABILITY

    Ability in ice – her high ice-class (1A) means she can manage well in icy conditions and get to landing sites with relative ease.

  • ELEGANT

    Spacious and elegant – both inside and out, the Ocean Adventurer impresses. Inside she has an old world feel with varnished wood and polished brass, while outside she has spacious outer decks for enjoying the breathtaking scenery.

INSIDER ADVICE

We’re a different kind of agency. We work on the ships, with the teams, and are currently active in the polar regions. Our insider advice is truly that - straight from the field - and it's updated in real time if things change.

ANTARCTICA

Everything you need to know about traveling to Antarctica. Including what time of the season is best for what you’re most keen to see.

ARCTIC

Everything you need to know about traveling to the Arctic. Which is a bit like our proverbial backyard/second home (because we’ve lived there).

WHAT TO BRING

Everything you need to know about what to bring on your trip. Including unusual stuff like why you might want goggles in Antarctica, or extra batteries in Svalbard.
