Responsible tourism: Ross Sea & Antarctic Circle voyage

Environment

Our Antarctic expedition ships are smaller, less imposing on the polar landscape than the bigger cruise ships. Group landings by zodiac are more easily managed and a low ratio of leaders to passengers provides a personalised, added value experience. Your onboard natural history experts, through guided walks and evening talks, reveal the wonders of Antarctic scenery and wildlife. In this way you will be introduced to some of the local and global conservation issues which this fragile habitat faces.

Our Antarctic expedition trips are made under full membership of the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) and as such abide by their strict codes of conduct. Encounters with all wildlife are controlled by strict responsible codes of conduct.

On our Antarctic Peninsula expeditions we are committed to the conservation of the places we visit.

This is why the company has calculated the average CO2 emissions of its Arctic and Antarctic Voyages and will automatically offset each clientís share of emissions via the charity Rainforest Concernís new Rainforest4Climate programme We will also automatically offset the carbon emissions of flights booked through the company for its polar expeditions.

Community

The areas we visit throughout Antarctica and the subAntarctic region have no permanent population other than the researchers who reside seasonally or overwinter at bases in the Peninsula and the Antarctic Islands.

There is a good rapport between such station staff and our small expedition ships, we bring passengers to appreciate their work, offer company and discussion and also bring their otherwise underused cash to uniquely spend on what service or souvenir they offer.

To further contribute to the areas in which we send our clients, we offset the carbon for voyages and flights for all those who travel to the Polar Regions with us. Such donations have help to fund 10,000 acres out of a total 3.3 million acres of new national park created by the Rainforest Trust in the Peruvian Amazon.

In Ecuador with Rainforest Concern, we paid for the purchase and protection of Choco-Andean cloud forest which extends the habitat of a newly discovered mammal: the Olinguito.

Our overall commitment to the environment is also reflected within our office environment. We source office supplies from local retailers, use recycled stationary where possible and recycle office waste.
