Why We Like Her

  • UPDATES

    While maintaining the rich aesthetic of older research vessels, the Spirit of Enderby enjoyed significant updates to common areas in 2018 and cabins in 2019, now boasting advanced sound and visual technology equipment as well as new linen, carpet, seat coverings and mattresses.

  • ITINERARIES

    While a majority of Antarctic expeditions depart from South America to the Peninsula, the Spirit of Enderby enjoys itineraries to the remote Ross Sea with the opportunity to see Emperor Penguins and visit historical huts from the era of polar exploration.

  • INTIMACY

    With just 50 passengers and half the berths sharing facilities, you are bound to make many new friends during your polar expedition.

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.
