Why We Like Her

  • DESIGN

    The streamlined Ulstein X-BOW® cuts through the swell of the Drake Passage and the Glass Atrium Lounge inside the bow features huge windows and super views to the front of the ship. Custom-built hydraulic platforms provide dedicated observation areas that swing out to offer unobstructed views.

  • TECHNOLOGY

    Sylvia Earle utilises virtual anchoring, also known as dynamic positioning, to hold its position using a combination of GPS, steering technology, propellers and thrusters. This protects the sea floor and minimises the damage caused by conventional anchors.

  • ACTIVITIES

    In addition to kayaking, Sylvia Earle also offers diving, climbing and ski touring with spacious activity preparation areas and loading platforms.
