Why choose Peregrine

Customise your adventure

A voyage to Antarctica is the ultimate trip of a lifetime, which is why we give you the freedom to customise your trip with a wide range of optional activities. Choose to explore the water on a kayaking expedition, sign up for a photography masterclass, rejuvenate with some onboard yoga and massage, or camp out overnight like a true polar explorer.

Small group expeditions

Leading small group adventures is at the core of what we do. While most polar expedition operators have a leader-to-passenger ratio of 10, 15 or 20, Peregrine expeditions on the Ocean Endeavour have an expedition crew member for every eight passengers. That means spending more quality time with your expert leaders learning about this unique environment and less time feeling like a face in a crowd.

Expert leaders

Our experienced leaders have made hundreds of polar voyages. Learn about the history, geography and wildlife of the Antarctic from experts in fields such as marine biology, glaciology and history who are always at the ready to answer questions, whether it’s out in the field or at the dinner table.

Responsible travel

Antarctica is one of the last great wildernesses on the planet, so we put a lot of care into ensuring we leave only footprints behind on our expeditions. That’s why we carbon offset our expeditions and put a variety of sustainability practices in place. We also serve only sustainably-sourced seafood, avoid single-use plastics and use biodegradable and phosphate-free cleaning products on board.

Ocean Endeavour: your home on the sea

The newly-refurbished Ocean Endeavour offers a superb guest experience thanks to its expansive choice of cabin categories, large common areas, a sundeck, 360-degree polar landscape viewing, and lounges for learning and reflection. The ship’s interiors have a contemporary aesthetic that provides a bright and spacious feel throughout. The Ocean Endeavour is also the only polar expedition ship in Antarctica offering its own full-service health and wellness centre on board.

Leave only footprints

‘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

Hikers at Danco Island in Antarctica

Take your first steps on Antarctica

It’s one thing to witness a calving glacier or a snow-capped Antarctic landscape, but setting foot on the Great White Continent itself is a thrill beyond words. Tick off one of the must-experience pinnacles of adventure travel as you interact with hordes of penguins on their own terrain.

View trip

Witness the wildlife of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands

Enjoy unrivalled wildlife experiences in the British territories of the South Atlantic. Home to hundreds of thousands of breeding pairs of king penguin, St Andrews Bay is South Georgia’s largest penguin rookery and a spectacle to behold; and the Falklands boasts the world’s largest black-browed albatross colony.

View trip

Uncover the unique history and geology of Deception Island

Deception Island, a haunting environment set on a sunken volcano (one of only two active volcanoes in Antarctica), is the prime place to encounter gentoo, chinstrap and Adelie penguins. While the port has a dark history as a former whaling station, these days it’s used as a scientific outpost and the launching point for expeditions.

Camp out on the White Continent

There are camping trips, then there are unforgettable camping trips. Step from a Zodiac onto the shore of Antarctica and spend a night among the snow-dusted peaks, immense glaciers and great expanses of contrasting ocean and ice. It is an optional activity not to be missed.

Discover Antarctica

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.
