Why choose Peregrine
Our ships are built for polar conditions, with ice-strengthened hulls and safety being our biggest priority. Each vessel is equipped with modern conveniences and provides the perfect platform for Antarctic exploration.
Our experienced leaders have made hundreds of polar voyages. Learn about the history, geography and wildlife of the Antarctic from experts in the field, including naturalists and ornithologists who are always at the ready to answer questions.
Twice daily excursions
We run frequent excursions to get up-close to wildlife, allowing you to experience what it’s like exploring onshore. Each day includes two excursions with our leaders exploring the sea ice, ready to encounter any wildlife that may waiting. You’ll be given life vests and waterproof boots for each excursion.
All cruises provide three course meals, 24-hour tea and coffee, and main activities including Zodiac excursions, onboard seminars and shore landings. Our chefs know just how to warm you up after your Antarctic outing, just be ready for a second serving!
All of our ships and operations teams undergo strict safety audits. We are committed to upholding the highest safety standards on all our trips operating within the Antarctic region.
Peregrine Adventures is committed to travelling in a way that is respectful of local people, their culture, local economies and the environment. Our operators are members of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and choose carbon neutral vessels.
Your home on the sea
We know you want to be as comfortable as possible while onboard, which is why we’ve chosen vessels equipped with modern conveniences like LED televisions and internet connectivity, along with luxurious touches that make each voyage a true pleasure. Each ship boasts onboard chefs to prepare a range of hearty, quality meals, and onboard experts to ensure you spend more time seeing the sights and less time thumbing through a guidebook.
‘Sustainable cruising’ might seem like a contradiction in terms, given the history of the big mega liners. But it’s a side of the industry we want to change. Voyages are carbon offset and we refrain from single-use plastics on board, recycle, cook with sustainable seafood, and use biodegradable cleaning products in bathrooms. It’s all part of our commitment to being a carbon neutral company and, since 2018, a certified B Corp (Benefits Corporation).
We also give back to the region by supporting such organisations as the Mawson’s Huts Foundation. Established in 1997, the foundation conserves the fragile and historic buildings at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay, East Antarctica, which were built and occupied by the legendary geologist and explorer Sir Douglas Mawson.
Highlights of Antarctica
Celebrate Christmas in Antarctica
They say the way you bring in a new year indicates how you want to spend the following one, so spending your Christmas and New Year’s in Antarctica is a pretty good standard to set! Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the Great White South, searching for penguins, whales and seals among the icy waters.
Antarctica's frozen waters are where migrating humpback and minke whales take to. During this season, you'll have the chance to take Zodiac excursions through ice-filled bays to get closer to the magnificent, migrating mammals, with expert guidance and information from our expedition crew.
South Georgia is often the unsung hero of an Antarctic voyage due to the unique landscapes and plentiful wildlife onshore. There are 150,000 breeding pairs of King Penguins (plus their chicks) on one beach alone, which is a sight you won't ever forget.
Venturing to the ends of the earth is a moment to revel in as most expeditions won’t come this far south. Make the journey towards 66°33’ S and enjoy a celebratory toast as you take in your surreal surroundings – while not a typical landing, the crossing of the Antarctic Circle leaves a lasting memory.
There is more than one Antarctica. The Great White Continent is a diverse place that offers not only some of the world’s most extraordinary wildlife but also a great breadth of landscapes, geography and human history – even pub culture. Dive deeper and compare the Antarctic peninsula with the Subantarctic Islands. A greater understanding of these regions will help shape your journey and ensure you come away with a richer experience.
