Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
On our Antarctic Polar Circle expeditions we are committed to the conservation of the places we visit.

Our Antarctic diving 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.

The Impacts of this Trip

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. At Vernadsky station for example the friendly Ukrainian researchers are happy to provide us with a tour of their laboratories- the place where the Ozone hole was first discovered, share news and stories, join us for a beer or vodka at their bar and of course sell stamps and postcards which can take up to a year to arrive! Help is also given to scientists and station personnel if they need to be transferred from South America to their working places in the Antarctic , and vice versa.

Reviewed on 19 Feb 2020 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Humpback whales bubble-netting Krill. The huge penguin colonies. The land/seascapes.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Consider the dates. I went in early February - at that time the penguin chicks were fledging and the penguins were very active, came close, and interesting to
see. After fledging the penguins leave and there is none to see. Before fledging the penguins are on their nests.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


There are no local people. There was very little environmental impact as the biosecurity was good. The presentations and experience raised level of
knowledge on conservations issues..

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent. This ship/trip included 2 zodiac trips a day - mostly shore landings which are a terrific way to see and experience the landscape and wildlife.

Read the operator's response here:

Great that you had an amazing voyage Colin, it has been our pleasure to help you. Just to let you know that the penguin antics continue well into March, I have guided on operations several times during this latter month when in addition to penguins , whales are well fed and plentiful and leopard seals are at their best. Each season has something very unique In Antarctica depending on preferences and we are delighted you have great memories from your time there with us !
