Sail on a Small Ship

When traveling to Antarctica, there are several Antarctica ship options to consider: small, medium, or large ships. Learn more about how to choose the best ship for your Antarctic expedition.

Fly to Antarctica

Flying over the Drake Passage allows you to reach Antarctica quickly, so you can make the most of your precious vacation time. We skip a two-day ship crossing and quickly immerse you in the beauty of the Seventh Continent.

Ships & Aircrafts

Our air-cruise fleet includes three boutique expedition ships: the new Magellan Explorer, Hebridean Sky and Ocean Nova. We use three similar aircraft for flight operations: the BAE 146-200, the AVRO RJ 85, and the AVRO RJ 100.

After a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2016, this classically elegant, all-suite vessel became one of the world’s finest small ships. Experience your Antarctica cruise on board small ship Hebridean Sky.

Sturdy and nimble, this ship was built to sail the ice-choked waters of Greenland and is ideally suited for Antarctic expeditions.

Testimonial

“The Classic Antarctica air-cruise was amazing, thanks in part to our experienced and friendly guides. I especially enjoyed exploring alongside a bird naturalist, a marine mammals biologist, and a polar historian and explorer (who skied to both poles!)”
