Magellan Explorer

Magellan Explorer is a new and modern expedition vessel custom build for Antarctic 'air-cruises'. During these expeditions you fly over the Drake Passage to Antarctica, where you then board your expedition ship.
For air-cruises, Magellan Explorer has capacity for 73 passengers accommodated in seven categories of accommodation, including dedicated single cabins. The small size of the ship makes your experience even more personal and offers great operational flexibility.
All cabins, except Porthole cabins, feature private balconies. Most of the double cabins have two twin beds that can be configured as one king-size bed. All cabins feature a wardrobe, individually controlled heating system, a sitting area, and a private bathroom with shower.
The ship features a glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, a spacious and stylish dining room, a well-stocked bar, a library, a meeting room, a gym, a sauna, and a medical clinic. The forward-facing observation deck leads to the bow of the ship, which is accessible to guests to offer proximity to marine wildlife. The ship has a fleet of 10 zodiac boats that are well suited for disembarking and wildlife watching.


“Being on a small-ship means less noise, less distraction, more Antarctica! By default in extreme environments, plans will always change; being small allows for more flexibility and adaptability for travel plans. And probably, most importantly staff can establish a personal connection with guests. We can run into each other in the hallways and chat about the day in the observation lounges. During an expedition, it seems like we all become part of the same team that is exploring this amazing destination at the end of the world. For me, it's one of the best parts of the job.”
