If you’re going to explore Antarctica, you might as well do it right.

The Ocean Endeavour is a far cry from the expedition vessels of old and, just quietly, we're tipping it’s the place be in the 2020 Antarctic season. Not only is it one of the few polar expedition ships in Antarctica with a focus on health and wellness, it also has, on our new itineraries starting in 2020, one crew member for every eight travellers. This means you’ll enjoy a more personal, informative and comfortable trip. With a gym, library, wide range of cabin types, modern Zodiacs and 360° views from the unique flydeck, the Ocean Endeavour is quite literally the coolest way to take the trip of a lifetime.
