Along the way you will discover pristine coral reefs, meet the indigenous people and revel in the vibrant Afro-Caribbean culture.

Why travel with us?
Spirit of Adventure
No matter where we are, we encourage a true sense of exploration. Zodiac cruise into a craggy cove to take a closer look at rockhopper penguins scaling a cliff, or take a guided hike across the tundra in search of the elusive arctic fox. You can also choose from a large selection of optional activities to make the most of your adventure.
Relaxed Onboard Atmosphere
Our approachable expedition team will make every effort to ensure that you feel right at home. Whether that means sharing tales of adventure at the bar, dining in friendly groups or heading up to the bridge in your pyjamas for a polar bear sighting, our small groups and warm camaraderie create a relaxed, informal atmosphere on board.
This style of travel tends to attract like-minded people who love to connect with the natural world. Our small group ethos fosters an open, friendly environment, where making new connections is easy. We welcome solo travellers: avoid single supplements with our cabin-sharing service, or ask about special deals for your own room.
It's been more than 30 years since our co-founders, Greg and Margaret Mortimer started taking small groups of friends and keen travellers to Antarctica. Aboard small, ice-strengthened vessels, they took groups of intrepid explorers to places that few, if any, had been before, pioneering a long list of 'firsts' along the way.
Book with Confidence
You can book with confidence when you book with Aurora Expeditions. Our Deposit Protection Program for all new bookings will protect your funds and our enhanced and in-depth Health & Safety policies and practices ensures the safety and well-being of expeditioners, expedition staff and crew in association with COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
