Responsible tourism

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

Environment
This Antarctic cruise offers inclusive Carbon Neutral voyages and all vessels use Marine Gas Oil (MGO), a clean burning fuel with a low emission factor. This expedition also only serves sustainable seafood aboard the ship, uses eco-friendly laundry chemicals and bathroom products and adheres to international regulations for the disposal of waste at sea. All ships are nearly paperless, and any paper used is 100% recyclable.

This Antarctic expedition is operated in line with standards set by the IAATO and AECO to ensure sustainability is maintained and tours have low impact. Crew, staff and passengers are briefed on environmental guidelines and the science behind them before embarking.

Many of the talks and lectures provided by the shipís team of experts focus on conservation and the environment, and you are encouraged to return home and share what youíve learned with loves ones in order to spread the message on the importance of preserving the planet.

All visitors to Antarctica are bound by the Antarctic Treaty and the Protocol and must comply with environmental regulations. Visitors must never disturb the Antarctic wildlife. You cannot touch, feed or do anything to alter the behaviour of animals. Keep noise to a minimum and avoid flash photography. If you keep still and quiet, animals may approach you, however you must never interfere with them. Avoid damaging the unique plant-life. Youíll come across unique moss, lichen and herbs which can take decades to grow, so donít damage or step on them.

Everyone must undergo rigorous decontamination procedures before stepping on land. Boats, shoes (youíll be provided with special boots), clothing and equipment must be vacuumed and disinfected to avoid the introduction of new species to the delicate Antarctic ecosystems.
