The M/V Ocean Nova is a modern and comfortable vessel, built in 1992 to sail the ice-choked waters of Greenland, making her ideally suited for expedition travel in Antarctica. The ship has a capacity for 68 passengers accommodated in outside cabins, all with private facilities. There is a spacious dining room, bar, library, glass-enclosed observation lounge, presentation room and exercise room. The ship's Zodiac boats are well suited for disembarking and wildlife watching.
At 137 metres in length the Ocean Endeavour is a purpose-built vessel that is designed to explore remote environments with a maximum of 198 passengers. The ship’s shallow draft and good manoeuvrability means that bays, isolated fjords and secluded communities can easily be accessed. There is a range of cabin sizes, each cabin offering a private bathroom, air conditioning and television. There is plenty of deck space to be enjoyed and facilities on board include a swimming pool, sauna, three lounges and a restaurant.
Daily outdoor activities combine excursions on the fleets of zodiacs, shore landings and hikes, while optional activities such as camping (Antarctica only), kayaking and snowshoeing are available on selected departures. Additional charges apply for camping and kayaking, and pre-booking is essential.

This sturdy ice-strengthened ship is a former research vessel that offers an intimate expedition experience. The Polar Pioneer’s lower passenger capacity means greater itinerary flexibility and more time exploring on shore or with zodiac boats, while its strength and smaller size allow access to remote areas that larger vessels cannot reach. Onboard the atmosphere is relaxed and casual with western chefs, a Russian crew of renowned ice-navigators and a highly experienced expedition team with strong connections to the polarregions. Sea kayaking is optional, while overnight camping is available at no extra cost on selected early season Antarctica departures. Fly-cruise options save time in sea crossing and provide more time for landings.
The Sea Adventurer (formerly known as the Clipper Adventurer) combines the comforts and classic style of a traditional cruise ship with the polar capabilities of an ice-strengthened expedition vessel.

Enjoy the polar scenery and search for wildlife from the observation decks, which feature outside seating, or relax inside the spacious lounge and enjoy fine dining in the window-lined dining room.
The Silver Explorer combines an expedition style exploration with the highest level of comfort.
