Yacht expedition specialists, Pelorus is offering a limited number of guests the chance to explore Antarctica by superyacht, from 50,000 EUR per cabin. This unprecedented opportunity to charter a single cabin aboard the 77.4m yacht LEGEND, normally only available as a full charter from 490,000 EUR per week, brings Antarctica within the reach of a greater number of adventurous spirits looking to visit the White Desert in style. This expedition is available for 26 guests for only two weeks in December (6 – 13 December and 13 – 20 December 2019).
LEGEND is fully equipped for serious polar exploration, with everything from sea kayaks, dive equipment, snowmobiles and jet skis, to submersibles and heli-pads (latter at extra cost) onboard. The range of experiences available from this incredible vessel include breath-taking kayaking through fleets of dramatic icebergs, incredible wildlife encounters with chinstrap penguins, seals and indigenous sea birds and whales. Explorers will also visit the polar research station, and can join in the scientific research efforts with resident experts working directly with unique wildlife, recording the weather patterns, and learning more about the history of the world as extrapolated from the ice. Those feeling brave can take the plunge into the geothermal waters, or take a helicopter up to the top of the glaciers for spectacular views and sundowners. All these once in a lifetime experiences can be posted home at the southernmost post-box in the world.
After an unforgettable journey on the ice, LEGEND is the ultimate home to return to. She offers the highest standards of comfort, from a 16-person Jacuzzi, screening room, Balinese spa and gym as well as exceptional dining and the wonderful care of 19 crew, making this the most sumptuous way to explore the Antarctic. As one can expect when travelling on a superyacht, each cabin is beautifully designed to the highest levels, and there are a range of different spaces onboard to ensure all guests have the opportunity to peel off, or enjoy the social spaces of the piano and whisky bars after a day on the ice.
Pelorus is excited to offer this brand-new polar experience to its guests, many of whom have dreamt of exploring Antarctica in a small group, and in the greatest comfort. This is an opportunity to see one of the world’s last great unknowns, with great care for this sensitive environment. Pelorus puts together these exceptional journeys whilst remaining committed to protecting the planet, supporting their official partner, Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE), and being an active member of IAATO (International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators) to ensure a sustainable approach to cruising these waters is maintained.
