Sea Explorer


One of the true pioneers of small-ship expeditions, the Sea Explorer is ice-strengthened and designed to handle even the most ice-heavy corridors of Antarctica. Carrying only 111 passengers, an Antarctica cruise aboard the Sea Explorer guarantees to be exclusive, intimate and impossible to forget.

Sister ship to the sensational Sea Spirit, the Sea Explorer can glide swiftly and comfortably through the icy straits of Antarctica. With only 53 cabins, she brings meaning to the idea of small-ship expeditions and offers a personal, in-depth voyage to Antarctica like no other. Active Antarctica travellers can get up to all kinds of polar activities included snow-shoeing and kayaking, while more relaxed guests can sift through the stock of the Polar Library and enjoy scenic sips up on deck. With a unique wraparound sun deck, the Sea Explorer is superb for stretching out in the bright sunshine as the ship weaves amongst surreal and spectacular scenery. The Sea Explorer is a surefire way to see Antarctica with in a personal, individual style and we can’t recommend her highly enough.
