It's been 25 years since our co-founders, Greg and Margaret Mortimer, first started taking small groups of travellers to Antarctica and we're marking the occasion with a celebratory 25th Anniversary Voyage! Led by one of our original expedition leaders, Gary Miller, we'll witness amazing wildlife, enjoy nature at its best and raise a glass to the two explorers that started it all.
To commemorate this exciting milestone, we're including a stack of anniversary bonuses on this special departure. Every passenger onboard will receive an exclusive 25th Anniversary Gift Pack featuring a special onboard anniversary dinner, a limited-edition explorer patch, and a special 25 Year commemorative book.
