Pricing & Voyage Update

Due to the unforeseen impact of COVID-19, we have had to reschedule many of our voyages. We have contacted all our travel agent partners with affected bookings to advise them of the changes. You can download the revised schedule and pricing information here. Our pricing remains largely unchanged but has been modified in some instances due to minor changes in itinerary length.

Please find below a summary of the changes we’ve had to implement.

  • 2020 Global Voyages – we have rescheduled our Patagonia & Chilean Fjords (PCF001G) and Costa Rica & the Panama Canal (CRP001G) voyages to 2021.
  • 2020 Arctic Voyages – We have rescheduled our Arctic voyages, departing between May and October, to 2021. The exception being our Iceland, Greenland & East Canada voyage (IAR001G) which has been cancelled.

Antarctica 20/21 Voyages: November 2020 onwards

  • Antarctic voyages up until the 26th December 2020 – For Antarctic voyages scheduled before 27 December, 2020, we are currently speaking to passengers travelling on these voyages, as we believe it is highly unlikely that they will be able to travel to Argentina during this period. We are working closely with these passengers to move them to a like-for-like voyage in our 2021/2022 program.
  • Antarctic voyages from 27th December 2020 onwards – we will be providing an update on these voyages in by the end of July. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely and we are working on alternative plans in the event that international travel will not be possible for your clients, or if they are not yet ready to commit to travel at this time.

2021 Arctic update – we have made some slight date/itinerary changes to voyages in the 2021 Arctic program as a result of the postponement of our 2020 Arctic voyages, with exception to the two voyages below with changes outlined:

  • Orkneys, Faroes, Jan Mayen & Svalbard (SFS001G) has been rescheduled to 2022.
  • East Greenland Explorer (EGL001G) has been cancelled.

2021 Global Voyages – The following changes have been made to voyages as outlined below:

  • Guanacaste, Costa Rica (GCR001G) has been cancelled.
  • Costa Rica & The Panama Canal (CRP002G) has been rescheduled to 2022.
  • Ireland’s West Coast (IRE001G) and Wild Scotland (SCOT16G) have been rescheduled to 2022.

The Greg Mortimer

Our current purpose-built expedition ship, the Greg Mortimer set sail in October this year! If you missed it, we have new images from our inaugural voyage in Antarctica and a 7.5 minute video with Greg Mortimer himself and the new ship. We’ve also launched a brand-new TV ad, click below to view our 30 second ad, as well as 15 second and 6 second version for social media.

If you would like your travel agency call to action added on any of the videos, please send the copy of your logo and the details that you would like added (e.g. phone number, email address and website) to [email protected]. Please note there is approximately a 2-3 week turnaround.

The New Sylvia Earle

Our 2nd purpose-built expedition vessel honours the highly accomplished marine biologist, oceanographer and explorer, Sylvia Earle. As the first female chief scientist of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and named by Time Magazine as its first Hero for the Planet in 1998 – this vessel pays tribute to Sylvia’s long standing conservation efforts for marine protected areas and ocean wildlife. 

Besides the same revolutionary Ulstein X-BOW® design like the Greg Mortimer, the Sylvia Earle features a distinctive Glass Atrium Lounge at the bow of the ship with a stunning panoramic view on both port and starboard side, a swimming pool and jacuzzi where you can admire impressive scenery while watching the world go by.
