Sylvia Earle

Antarctica Cruises

Named after the great American biologist and conservationist, The Sylvia Earle launches in November 2022 as a carbon-neutral ‘Floating Ambassador for the Planet.’ Each of the vessel’s public decks is named after six pioneering female conservationists – Dr Carden Wallace AM, Joanna Ruxton, Sharon Kwok, Bernadette Demientieff, Dr Asha de Vos and Hanli Prinsloo – along with a deck dedicated to Dr Earle. These scientists are inspiring leaders in their fields and during the voyage, expeditions are encouraged to learn more about their pioneering work. What sets this vessel apart is her genuine dedication to using tourism for good. Everyone should carefully consider any trip to one of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet, and the team behind Sylvia Earle have found a way to make a positive impact.This 71-cabin purpose-built ship is dedicated to research and knowledge with a fully equipped Citizen Science Centre. The ship features a swimming pool, library, lecture room and wellness centre. The streamlined design cuts through swell with fewer vibrations ensuring a more comfortable crossing of sometimes choppy waters. Activities include scuba diving, photography expeditions, camping and paddle boarding. Almost every cabin features a balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the beauty of Antarctica in peace and privacy. Budget permitting, we think the Junior Suite or Captain’s Suite categories are among the best cabins available in Antarctica.

  • The highly acclaimed expedition specialists and guides are some of the best in the business.
  • Serious about sustainability – the ship is 100% carbon neutral.
